The Glass Bead Game from the Author: Hermann Hesse. The Glass Bead Game, for which Hesse won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1946, is the author's last and crowning achievement, the most imaginative and prophetic of all his novels. Setting the story in the distant postapocalyptic future, Hesse tells of an elite cult of intellectuals who play an elaborate game that uses all the cultural and scientific knowledge of the Ages. The Glass Bead Game is a fascinating tale of the complexity of modern life as well as a classic of modern literature. This edition features a Foreword by Theodore Ziolkowski that places the book in the full context of Hesse's thought.

Hymn To Old Age from the Author: Hermann Hesse. From the author of Steppenwolf and The Glass Bead Game, Hermann Hesse's Hymn to Old Age (Mit der Reife wird man immer j├╝nger) is a collection of his most beautiful short works, including intimate memories of his final years. Hermann Hesse not only lived well into his eighties, but as a compulsive writer he also kept a record through his notebooks, letters, stories, poems and novels of his reactions to every phase of life that he passed through. This anthology traces his thoughts and experiences over several decades, capturing the problems, delights and very frequently the humour of old age. Shining through all these literary gems is a deep love of life, an acceptance of death, and an exhilaratingly youthfulness that Hesse himself would argue is characteristic only of the very young and the very old.
