Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Nobel prize-winning author Hermann Hesse imagined life in India during the lifetime of the Buddha to create this memorable tale about a restless seeker of enlightenment. First published in 1922, Siddhartha employs powerful symbolism to impart its timeless teachings.

The story concerns a young Brahman who quits his comfortable home to join a roving group of holy men in striving to empty their hearts of passion and desire through self-denial and meditation. Discouraged by his failure to find Nirvana after three years of the strictest asceticism, the young seeker turns to the fleshly world, where he becomes a wealthy merchant and partakes of sensual pleasures with a sophisticated courtesan. Years of materialistic self-indulgence numb Siddhartha's soul, but at his moment of greatest despondency, he begins to experience his long-sought spiritual awakening. True enlightenment, he realizes, cannot be received from the lessons of others; it must be attained through individual struggle.

This handy dual-language edition—with its excellent line-for-line English translation on pages facing the original German text—offers students an outstanding opportunity to hone their German-language skills while discovering a literary classic.

Original Dover (1998) publication. Unabridged republication of the German text from a standard edition. Introduction and new English translation by Stanley Appelbaum. 

Synopsis:

The 1922 classic, based on events from the life of Buddha, tells of a restless young seeker's spiritual journey, ranging from years of asceticism to the ultimate enlightenment. Line-for-line English translation on facing pages.
