Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Known for engaging prose rich in human sympathy and imagination, Nobel Prize-winning German novelist Hermann Hesse (1877-1962) incorporated two themes in most of his works: the isolation of the artist and the fundamental duality of existence. The second of these is particularly evident in Demian, Hesse's first major novel. In it, the youthful Emil Sinclair recognizes that life consists of opposing forces; however, his older friend Max Demian manages to both clarify and complicate Sinclair's confused thoughts about life's conflicting values. Popular with young adults since it was first published in 1919, this brilliant psychological portrait of a troubled young man's exploration of the duality of human nature has retained its remarkable power as a poignant statement of the terrors and torments of adolescence. It is reprinted here with an informative introduction by Stanley Appelbaum, who has also provided excellent literal English translations on pages facing the German original.

Book News Annotation:

<:st>Previous editions are cited in Dover has combined the original 1919 German text with Appelbaum's translation (published in 2000 as a Dover Thrift edition) in a side-by-side edition. A new introduction by Appelbaum has been included, making this a full treatment of Hesse's story.
