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.

Six nouvelles écrites entre 1908 et 1922. Les cinq premières décrivant l'itinéraire de cinq hommes, trois jeunes gens - un séminariste, un collégien, un apprenti - et deux missionnaires, saisis par la nostalgie du vagabondage et le démon de la sensualité. En épilogue, la sixième nouvelle livre le portrait d'un vieil ascète jetant l'anathème sur les jouisseurs, sa fureur imprécatoire s'éteignant dans une sorte de toedium vitoe où, dans La Conversion de Casanova, Hesse avait déjà installé le lit du vieux Casanova. Entre vice et vertu, mensonges et prières, foi et révolte, débauche et ascèse, crime et innocence, sublimation et amours mercenaires, le sextuor de Hesse vit des aventures médiocres mais rêve, comme Hypérion, d'une Diotima qui le rendrait à l'harmonie originelle. Le romancier pensait que ses textes sont les biographies d'une âme, des monologues dans lesquels une seule personne est considérée dans ses rapports au monde et à son propre moi. Berthold est un monologue en six tableaux représentant les trois âges d'une vie aiguillonnée par la seule quête de soi - Linda Lê.
