It says something about the power of Hesse s writing that than one of these stories moved me despite my not being at all in the mood for anything even minimally impactful Certain traits of his writing the earnestness, the melancholy, the perpetual search for the sublime never cease to awe me, no matter how reluctant I am to be impressed He s a fiction writer who, should you give yourself over to him, will get you closer to the secrets of existence than any other storyteller And as seen here, that ability was alive and well even in his formative days Augustus is one of the stronger entries that sets the template for many of the stories here a young man, a wise angel god master, and learning the secrets of happiness The Poet, Flute Dream and The Hard Passage were lesser variations on this theme and very similar to each other The last was the best of these, with a powerful, haunting ending The titular Strange News was perhaps the most distinct story but a little too earnest for my taste, and also the least focused.The stars of the collection are the last two stories Faldum is a glorious, depressing tale of a man who turns into a mountain it does to impress upon one the pointlessness of human existence than any fiction I ve ever read The way Hesse zooms out from the human to the earth perspective is both dizzying and electrifying Iris is the beautiful, tragic story of a man who sacrifices everything in the hunt for childish joy and innocence It s unclear to me if Hesse acknowledges the impossibility of this search he either denies the legitimacy of this cynicism or he accepts it while wishing it weren t so Either way, attentive readers are left with a repudiation of their shallow existence, and possibly even a faint twinge of desire for Hesse s pure life of contemplation, no matter how unrealistic it may seem.I ve said it before and I ll say it again Hesse is not a perfect writer, and his philosophy is similarly flawed But I love him for his never ending quest to solve existence, and his admirable bravery in facing the question head on It s a special talent that could make such a spiritual odyssey so incredibly captivating on the page.Not Bad Reviews blakerosser1 Strange News from another Star Augustus The Poet Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon The Hard Passage A Dream Sequence Faldum Flute Dream Strange News from Another Star 555 Iris Strange News from Another Star 61 .. Having reread not to long ago Steppenwolf and The Glass Bead Game I find it inescapable that I was far powerfully moved by this collection of short stories For me the short stories are just condensed in Hesse s case, a kind of refined essence, the health giving brandy in comparison to the wine of the novels view spoiler then again it may just be that the reproduced detail from a Casper David Friedrich painting on the cover made all the difference as I read across my liking for that to the stories, and had the other novels similar covers I can t help suspecting that I would have found them far sophisticated, intelligent and wise hide spoiler 7 7 Strange News from Other Star.
