Pictor's Metamorphoses, and Other FantasiesBook - 1982
In the spring of 1922, several months after completing Siddhartha, this author wrote a fairy tale that was also a love story, inspired by the woman who was to become his second wife. That story, "Pictor's Metamorphoses," is presented here along with a half century of his other short writings. Inspired by the Arabian Nights & the tales of the Brothers Grimm, these nineteen stories display the full range of his lifetime fascination with fantasy - as dream, fairy tale, folktale, satire, & allegory.
