Most of these I’ve had for years vowing one day to read them all. Over time I’d read Siddhartha, Journey, Poems and Wandering (all the short easy volumes) but starting the first of this year I began methodically reading all of Hesse’s works in the order they were first published. So far I’ve enjoyed every one. (half way thru Narcissus as I type this) I would definitely include Hesse among my favorite authors. Also read a couple of books about Jung that helped fill in some of the background.
BTW – I’m missing ‘Knulp’ if anyone would like to help out.
