Hermann-Hesse-Museum Calw - Tour 05/20

Bücher anderer Autoren

As a reviewer, Hesse recommended more than 3,000 books by other authors to a broader public in keeping with the principle: "Acknowledging and propagating what is good, and not even bothering to discuss what is of lesser merit."

 

Dreijährigen Hermann Hesse im Fotostudio

"On Monday, July 2, 1877, after a difficult day, God in his mercy grants us, at six thirty in the evening, the child we had so fervently longed for ... a magnificent specimen of a strong, healthy boy." (from the diary of Hesse's mother, Marie Hesse).

The picture on the wall shows Hermann Hesse, aged 3, at the Calw photographic studio.
