As you can tell from my table above, there was not much stuff about Hesse that I knew before this class. In class we had a presentation with the information above presented. Hesse had an interesting life as I have came to realize that most literature authors do. They are very good at expressing their strange, hard, dramatic, etc. lives in writing.
