This volume gathers the most alluring stories, recollections, contemplations, and poems on butterflies by Herman Hesse. 

"I have always had a connection with butterflies and other fleeting and ephemeral beauties, while I have never succeeded in maintaining permanent, committed, and so-called solid relationships," writes Hermann Hesse in a letter from 1926.
