Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the novel, Siddhartha, a young man, leaves his family for a contemplative life, then, restless, discards it for one of the flesh. He conceives a son, but bored and sickened by lust and greed, moves on again. Near despair, Siddhartha comes to a river where he hears a unique sound.

From the Paperback edition.

Synopsis:

A fresh translation of the Nobel laureate's acclaimed novel blends elements of psychoanalysis and Asian religions to probe an Indian aristocrat's efforts to renounce sensual and material pleasures and discover spiritual truths. Reprint. 20,000 first printing.
