Publisher's Summary

The 6 wonderful, romantic tales in this collection are reminiscent of ancient Oriental and German fairy tales. The selections, "The Poet," "The Flute Dream," "The Dwarf," "Faldum," "Ziegler," and "Dream of the Gods" were hand-picked by the narrator, legendary folk and rock musician Donovan.

Donovan reads Hesse

Donovan made for a refreshing narrator, with his soft, dulcid tones, interspersed with guitar chords as emphasis. My only criticism, if any, would be his tendency to trail off his sentences in places, making them difficult to hear clearly, but it could be more down to the actual recording volume, but he can be forgiven regardless. I enjoyed it immensely, and I hope Donovan does more Hesse, or even Kahlil Gilbran, whose stories would suit his style.
