Guess who I’ve been reading this year?

Hesse StackMost 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.

About Marcus

Who me? Introverted, neurotic, self-absorbed, increasingly cynical observer of human nature and part time social critic in hiding. Most of my life spent avoiding growing up. The naive idealistic passions of youth have evolved into the eclectic eccentricities of adulthood. Northeast Florida small-town native, related to people I can't relate to. Simultaneously my own best friend and worst enemy. Politically and spiritually unaffiliated, my personal ideologies put me all over the map or off it completely.
