“Masked Ball”


Masked Ball

-“Masked Ball,” Hermann Hesse, 1926

While I lived like a young man of the world, danced a lot, took part everywhere in the superficial pleasures of the modern world which I had previously not known at all and often found charming in their naive boisterousness – at the very same time I was constantly concerned with the most serious problems that life had given me.

-Hesse in a letter dated 1926, Hermann Hesse: A Pictorial Biography,
