Soul of the Age contains nearly 300 letters of Hesse's correspondence of more than thirty thousand letters. From his impassioned missives home from the seminary at age fourteen, to his last brief notes, written days before his death at eighty five, these letters constitute a continuing record of Hesse's life, the raw materials underlying his Nobel Prize-winning fiction.
