Deeply mired in philosophy and spirituality one of the greatest writers in modern history. An example though Steppenwolf and others are much finer examples.

Hesse's been a favorite of mine since "Demian" was required reading in one of my high school English classes.  I thought "Siddhartha" and "Narcissus and Goldmund" were excellent books.

Yeah, Siddartha was required in my Philosophy 101 class.  Hesse, Russell,  Nietzsche, Nozik, and a few others.

Loved that class - First class I took when I went back to school - got me hooked on learning it did...

I too sing his praises.  I had to read Siddharta for my philosophy 121 class.  I greatly enjoyed the book.

I love Hesse.  I've read Demian and Siddhartha.  And the latter, I've read 3-4 times!  I marvel at his ability to say some of the most profound things imaginable with deceptively simple language.
