It never ceases to amaze me how skillfully Hesse can weave philosophy into even his smallest stories. In just three stories from Knulp's life Hesse is able to give us an insight into his view of freedom, love and death. Even more impressive however, is the fact that at no point does the prose seem preachy or forced to make a point, but flows organically out of the life that Hesse creates. Quite rightly one of his best early works.

“A father can pass on his nose and eyes and even his intelligence to his child, but not his soul. In every human being the soul is new”
