I first read "wandering" as a nineteen-year-old student; then it, amongst other books, sent me on a quest to wrestle the best out of life and see the world. Now re-reading it in my late forties I find it has the same power to set the feet itching, to make one yearn for a nobler life. Hesse sets out to see the world beyond his valley. He divides the human race into "farmers" (those that stay at home, make laws and morality) and "nomads" (those that wander free, artists for whom there are no laws). He leaves you in no doubt as to which he (and you the reader)considers preferable.

'Wandering' is one of my favourite books. Slim enough to fit into a pocket, it contains sharp, unsentimental observations that capture every emotion a human being is capable of experiencing, from pleasure and wonder to loss and cynicism. A collection of poems and travel notes written on a journey over the Alps into Italy, Wandering gives us a fresh way of looking at the world. Hesse has the gift of presenting all his insights, yearnings, and foolishness in a way that makes one smile with recognition and pleasure at the humour inherent in life. As Hesse himself puts it: 'How beautiful, how silly, how magical - this poor life.'

I adore reading Hermann Hesse. He speaks to me on a level few other authors do, and somehow always seems to resonate while making me rethink something. This beautiful little book speaks volumes in itself.
