About the Author: Hermann Hesse

Hermann Hesse was a German-Swiss poet, novelist, and painter. In 1946, he received the Nobel Prize in Literature. His best known works include Steppenwolf, Siddhartha, and The Glass Bead Game (also known as Magister Ludi) which explore an individual's search for spirituality outside society.

In his time, Hesse was a popular and influential author in the German-speaking world; worldwide fame only came later. Hesse's first great novel, "Peter Camenzind", was received enthusiastically by young Germans desiring a different and more "natural" way of life at the time of great economic and technological progress in the country.

Throughout Germany, many schools are named after him. In 1964, the Calwer Hermann-Hesse-Preis was founded, which is awarded every two years, alternately to a German-language literary journal or to the translator of Hesse's work to a foreign language. There is also a Hermann Hesse prize associated with the city of Karlsruhe,Germany.

Ces propos rédigés au gré des circonstances dans un style un peu léger, souvent teinté d’ironie, possèdent une signification commune: ils combattent cette religion à la mode qui, en Europe comme en Amérique, glorifie l’homme moderne souverain, auteur de tant de réussites…

Écrits entre 1899 et 1959, les textes réunis ici, inédits jusqu’alors en français pour la plupart, parlent de musique, de peinture, de livres, de villes, de paysages, de rencontres avec des hommes. À travers eux, Hesse définit sa position face au monde contemporain et propose un nouveau rapport à l’existence, qu’il nomme «l’art de l’oisiveté». Prônant l’humour, le scepticisme, l’esprit critique, bref, la liberté de l’individu, il touche ici à l’essentiel, ce qui explique pourquoi ces textes sont aujourd’hui encore si actuels.
