I feel like I would be better ualified to review this book if I had of an understanding of the literary history of the fairy tale As it stands however I know only enough about the genre to say that Hesse s collection is traditional in the sense that they are not really written with Disney fed children in mind as these tales are mostly serious in theme and happy endings are often wanting Like any collection of stories I found some powerful than others Faldum was by far my favorite a meditative musing on the impermanence of humanity and its desires as told through the story of a town visited by a magical wish granter Others that stuck with me include Augustus about a boy who experiences the curse of being loved by everyone Dr Knoegle s End a wry cautionary tale about militant vegetarians and The Three Linden Trees about the unshakable loyalty of a set of close brothersAnyone familiar with Hesse s broader body work will recognize his dystopian concerns in tales that look at the evils of technology and war as well as the ways in which the demands of oppressive society cut men off from their spiritual roots Being less idealistic than I was when I first discovered his work as a teenager I found these stories didn t impact me as much as some of the subtle pieces with the exception of the strangely moving If The War Continues In this surreal piece a man bearing the same name as Hesse s main character from the novel Demian responds to the reduction of his society to a perpetual war state in the most sane and rational way one could possibly imagineRecommended for fans of Hesse and the traditional fairy tale genre

I ve loved the writing of Hermann Hesse ever since I first read Siddhartha in my teens but until now I had never read any of his short fiction This collection translated by Jack Zipes includes twenty two stories dated from 1904 to 1918 before the novels that I associate so fondly with my young adulthood Demian 1919 Siddhartha 1922 Steppenwolf 1927 and Journey to the East 1932 Since I enjoyed some of the stories than others I ll rate them separately The Dwarf 1904 is set in an aristocratic household in Venice This tale of love and revenge introduces a theme that will be found in several of the stories collected here the persecution of an artistic sensibility Shadow Play 1906 is a tale of love and murder that also features aristocratic characters And once again it is a gentle soul who suffers A Man by the Name of Ziegler 1908 is a critiue of Man Like a fairy tale it has magic and talking animals but the magic is in the form of the pseudoscience of alchemy This story also appears in Stories of Five Decades translated by Ralph Manheim The City 1910 is one of my favorites It tells of the rise and fall of a city I like the way Hesse takes a long view of history This story also appears in Stories of Five Decades translated by Ralph Manheim Dr Knoegle s End 1910 is about a vegetarian Like in The Dwarf and Shadow Play it is the sensitive man who suffers persecution The Beautiful Dream 1912 is another of my favorites It s a dream and I m fascinated by dreams I love the otherworldly uality of this story It reminds me a little of some of George MacDonald s stories The Three Linden Trees 1912 is a parable like fairy tale about the loyalty and love between three brothers Augustus 1913 has a magical grandfather who grants wishes Some of the stories in this book are like fairy tales than others and Augustus is one of the ones that is most like a traditional fairy tale The Poet 1913 is an otherworldly tale of a poet This otherworldly uality is what I most enjoy in Hesse s work Flute Dream 1914 is likewise an otherworldly tale of a poet Between this and The Poet I prefer The Poet but The Flute is still a five star story A Dream About the Gods 1914 is a dream about science and myth I like Hesse s dream stories but this is not among the best In Strange News from Another Planet 1915 a young man magically travels from his utopian planet to planet Earth Fortunately for him after his return he forgets it all as if it had been a dream Faldum 1916 is another story that uses the fairy tale element of wish granting Like The City it also takes the long view of history this time observed by a mountain who was once a man A Dream Seuence 1916 is a dream The dreams in this collection are different from the stories They are not stories presented as dreams They are dreams presented as stories This is not to say that Hesse actually dreamed these dreams Maybe he did and maybe he didn t It s just that they have the surreal and disconnected uality that dreams have The Forest Dweller 1917 presents the mythic minds of prehistory It seems like a counterpoint to A Dream About the Gods The Difficult Path 1917 is a cryptic story Is it a dream or isn t it Is this what it s like to be born If the War Continues 1917 presents a dystopian future In such a world it s good to have the magical ability to transcend reality The European 1918 is a parable about war and other races Set on Noah s ark it critiues European culture The Empire 1918 is the story of the rise and fall of a nation It is not uite as long of a view as The City but it is similar In The Painter 1918 an artist discovers his relationship with the world This is one of many stories about artists poets and other creative people The Fairy Tale About the Wicker Chair 1918 deserves to be called a fairy tale After all the chair does talk This is the tale of a painter who is unable to become an artist Iris 1918 is my absolute favorite story in this book If every other story had been a dud this collection would be worth owning for Iris alone It s a blue flower story and anyone who loves Novalis will love this too Five stars are not enough It deserves a whole galaxy of stars The best of Hermann Hesse can be summed up in this passage from Iris All children as long as they still live in the mystery are continuously occupied in their souls with the only thing that is important which is themselves and their enigmatic relationship to the world around them Seekers and wise people return to these preoccupations as they mature Most people however forget and leave forever this inner world of the truly significant very early in their lives Like lost souls they wander about for their entire lives in the multicolored maze of worries wishes and goals none of which dwells in their innermost being and none of which leads them to their innermost core and home 248Hesse is one of these wise people As a seeker of wisdom myself I consider myself blessed to have him as one of my guides and companions on the journey home

This is really an abridgment of the main collection translated by Jack Zipes This is a two cassette audio edition of narration with incidental guitar by Donovan In order the tales presented are A Man By The Name Of Ziegler 1908 A Dream About The Gods 1914 Faldum 1916 The Poet 1913 and Flute Dream 1914 This is the first time I ever dived into this material and I must say I much prefer the novels from Hesse such as Steppenwolf and Siddhartha These just don t work for me they seem somehow pained in their efforts to be poignant poetic and moralistic The rather deep plots of an alchemist s seed regretted wishes and the urge to craft a perfect poem shades of Goldmund here are all for rather mature minds and not as plain as the category fairy tale suggests These are like long parablesIt almost feels as much as I like an admire Donovan s vocal gifts that is cooing monotone deliver may have negatively affected these stories I feel as I should read them or at least some of them myself some time
