Summary (From the publisher):

This unique collection of twenty-three stories -- all but three available in English for the first time -- offers an unparalleled spectrum of Hermann Hesse's writing from 1899 to 1948. The reader can trace Hesse's development from the aestheticism of his youth through to the realism and surrealism of the next decades to the classicism of his old age. All his stories, as Hesse himself realized, are concerned primarily with his own secret dreams, his own bitter anguish and his own lifelong quest to penetrate the mysteries of man's inner reality.
