Reviews of Gertrude (1910)

Review by eriksonmobile (2005-10-18)
What does it mean to love? What consequences has love? Do we love for our own sake or for someone else? Should we prefer youth or old age? These are some of the questions Hesse's Book attempts to answer. Although the story itself is as the author acknowledges himself nothing spectacular. But read this if the above mentioned philosophical questions are of interst to you. Overall a great short novel.
