Trees: An Anthology of Writings and Paintings
by Hermann Hesse
"Whoever has learned to listen to trees no longer wants to be one. He wants to be nothing except who he is.” —Hermann Hesse
This compact and elegant collection of Hermann Hesse’s essays, poems, and passages on the subject of trees (and nature), accompanied by thirty-one of his own watercolor illustrations, reveals his inspired thoughts on transcendence, rebirth, and the instinctive growth present in all natural life.
Hermann Hesse understood spirituality and self-knowledge. In this book, his writings and watercolors mirror the seasons, reminding us that the annual rings of trees are also representations of our own days of struggle, happiness, and purpose.
