Hermann Hesse and His Magical Bridges
Languages of publication
This article discusses Hermann Hesse’s short trip to Asia in 1911 and its peculiar symbolism. The trip created an area of references which he used in his writing. He transformed experience of this trip and expectations connected therewith artistically and philosophically, building a special variation of the topos of the way to the East. This topos was widely employed in the times of counterculture, which had transformed it in its own way, but it is still vital today.
