The Hesse-Mann /Letters (ISBN10: 0974261556; ISBN13: 9780974261553)
ISBN13: 978-0974261553
ISBN10: 0974261556

Summary: The letters present two great XX century Nobel Prize writers grieving for the ruined world. In the 1930s and 1940s, they rail against the stupidity of war and the cowardice of diplomats, against the social savagery of the Nazis, against the blind forces of abstraction and nationalism. They brood about the fate of Germany and of Europe after the last shots have been fired. They have lived through a time of extraordinary horror and yet they have not surrendered to despair or nihilism. Reading the
letters, the reader will feel like some privileged guest in a special room, sitting off to the side somewhere, listening while these men talk.
