Hermann Hesse
Birthplace: Calw, Germany
Typewriter: Remington Noiseless* Remington Quite Deluxe,

Throughout his life, Hermann Hesse was a seeker. The German-Swiss writer Hermann was born in Calw and settled in Switzerland in 1918 shortly before the WWI broke out. Hesse resign German and acquired Swiss Citizen in 1922. Determined by the age of 13 " a poet or nothing," Hesse at first wrote derivative, romantic poems and stories of little merit. In his earliest novels, Peter Camenzind (1904; Eng. trans., 1961) and Beneath the Wheel (1906; Eng. trans., 1968), which expressed his long-smoldering resentment of his pious and repressive upbringing, he pulled himself out of the rut and won success. Hesse was awarded the Nobel Prize for literature in 1946.
