Summary (From the publisher):

To read Hesse's fairy tales is to enter a fabulous world of dreams and visions, philosophy and passion. These tales will enthrall and delight listeners of all ages. Some stories examine the dilemma of the artist, torn between the drive for perfection and the temptations of pleasure. Others reflect changes and struggles within society. Full of visionaries and seekers, princesses and wandering poets, Hermann Hesse's fairy tales inspire us with deep spiritual longing, and harbor the greatest joys and the deepest wounds of the heart.
