„And there is a magic inherent in every beginning“

Hermann Hesse (1877-1962) wanted to be „either a poet or nothing“ as a child. Today he is the most widely read author in the German language worldwide. Alois Prinz tells Hesse’s life, about his childhood in the Swabian town of Calw, the crises on the way to growing up, about his commitment in the world and his retreat to a village in Ticino. But Prinz also shows the unknown Hesse, „the staunchest rebel in German literature,“ as Marcel Reich-Ranicki called him.
