Hermann Hesse

Of all German writers, Hermann Hesse is my favourite one. He lived from 1877 to 1962. His style, mastery and command of the German language is - in my opinion - unsurpassed. I know that there are people who learn German only to read his work - and they are right.

In der Tat die beste Übersetzung. Von wem ist denn diese Übersetzung?

Indeed the best translation there is. Who is it by?

...ich weiß leider nicht, von wem die Übersetzung war; ich nehme aber an, sie stammt von einem Engländer, keinem Amerikaner.
