What Scholars say about SEASONS OF THE SOUL
Brother David Steindl-Rast
Ludwig Fischer proves wrong all who claim that "poetry is what gets lost in translation." His English versions of the sixty-eight poems by Hermann Hesse ring as if they had been first conceived in English. In addition to that, Fischer's sensitive introductions to these poems make this book a rare treasure. Hesse... struggled with the dark side of life and grew strong. Therefore his poems -now at last in English- can help us find strength to come fully alive."
- Brother David Steindl-Rast, OSB, author of Deeper Than Words: Living the Apostles' Creed and Gratefulness, The Heart of Prayer: An approach to Life in Fullness.

These vital, essential poems could not possibly be appearing at a more crucial time in the history of our Western culture...Hermann Hesse's poetry is as eye-opening and as life-giving as his most famous novels. It offers the heartfelt, infinitely timely guidance of someone who lived at every step what he wrote and who leads his readers back to the simplicity of 'what we knew in the beginning."
- Peter Kingsley, author of Realityand A Story Waiting to Pierce You: Mongolia, Tibet and the Destiny of the Western World.
