Publisher Comments:

"All I really wanted was to try and live the life that was spontaneously welling up within me. Why was that so very difficult?"

Generations of readers have recognized the impassioned cry that introduces the young narrator of Demian, and embraced this tale of a troubled young man's struggle toward self-awareness. Initially published in Berlin in 1919, the novel met with instant critical acclaim, as well as great popular success among people seeking answers amid the devastating aftermath of World War I.

A brilliant psychological portrait of an individual's departure from social conventions in the search for spiritual fulfillment, Demian encompasses many of the themes associated with Hermann Hesse, its Noble Prize-winning author, particularly the duality of human nature and the quest for inner peace.

Considered an important work in the evolution of 20th-century European literature, this perceptive coming-of-age novel enjoys a particular resonance with young adults, a fact that has made Demian a perennial favorite in schools and colleges all over the world. This inexpensive edition, featuring an excellent new English translation, is sure to be welcomed by teachers and students, and by the legions of confirmed Hesse fans.

Synopsis:

A brilliant psychological portrait of a troubled young man's quest for self-awareness, this coming-of-age novel reflects the author's preoccupation with the duality of human nature and the pursuit of spiritual fullfillment. New English translation. Introduction.

Synopsis:

In Demian, one of the great writers of the twentieth century tells the dramatic story of young, docile Emil Sinclair's descent--led by precocious shoolmate Max Demian--into a secret and dangerous world of petty crime and revolt against convention and eventual awakening to selfhood.

"The electrifying influence exercised on a whole generation just after the First World War by Demian...is unforgettable. With uncanny accuracy this poetic work struck the nerve of the times and called forth grateful rapture from a whole youthful generation who believed that an interpreter of their innermost life had risen from their own midst."
-- From the Introduction by Thomas Mann

Synopsis:

Nobel Prize-winning German novelist and poet Hermann Hesse was already considered an important writer when, in 1919, he published the novel "Demian", which made him famous throughout Europe. In addition to its appeal as a coming-of-age novel, the book is also important to anyone interested in the evolution of 20th-century literature.
