A life-affirming meditation on the approach of death, from the Nobel Prize-winning Hermann Hesse

A single volume of the most beautiful texts by Herman Hesse including intimate memories of his final years. Hesse collected life sketches, poems, aphorisms and short essays dedicated to the ultimate challenge of a writer who had already accomplished a celebrated body of work — that of accepting his final years and the approach of death with grace.
