♥ Book Title : Hermann Hesse
☯ Full Synopsis : ""A critical biography far surpassing the previous ones."--Times Higher Education Supplement "There are to be sure many writers whose biographies are more interesting than their fiction but Hesse is not one of these. He led a long and sometimes eventful life with marital tensions, traveL controversy, crises, even some thoughts of suicide and a period of time as a student in a home for retarded and unmanageable. In addition, there was his search which led him through the culture and arts of West and East, his views of politics and society, of psychology and philosophy. The difference between Hesse and other writers is that virtually every shred and patch of his life was brought into his writing, his fiction particularly. 'He had to write about himself and there is little of what he wrote that is not confessional in form and therapeutic in function.' Autobiography is the very matter of his work. Mileck's contribution is to extend and fill out the evidence of his life, his psychoanalysis, his drive toward self-realization which was the very engine of his being, to show the raw material and thus to invite readers to see how it was transmuted, transfigured, fantasized, poeticized, symbolized."--Los Angeles Times "Hesse was a prolific author for some 60 years, and his mind drew everything it contemplated into his private wars between flesh and spirit. objectivity and subjectivity, the longings for society and isolation. No one is better qualified to disentangle this abundance than Mileck, compiler of the huge two-volume Hesse bibliography. For completeness, then, no biography in English compares." --Kirkus Reviews "Mileck provides his own translations of the German quotations from Hesse's works, and the eight interpretive chapters are thoroughly indexed, making the work readily accessible to researchers and students concerned with specific Hesse questions and themes. This very readable book also contains a number of exceptional photographs, which, together with Mileck's fervor and understanding of the author, help create a living image of Hesse the man and the artist."--Choice "Professor Mileck . .. brings to his task an acquaintanceship with Hesse's published and unpublished writings .. . which borders on omniscience. This is a literary biography which concentrates on the works and looks at the life of its subject briefly and always in relation to its involvement with the works . . . [This] is true scholarship, which does not make the book less readable and accessible to the general public. . . . a solid and valuable book which should make it easier . . . to bring [Hesse] back into the orbit of serious appreciation in the English-speaking world." --Books and Bookmen"Article| Joseph Mileck| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Siddhartha
☯ Full Synopsis : "A book—rare in our arid age—that takes root in the heart and grows there for a lifetime. Here the spirituality of the East and the West have met in a novel that enfigures deep human wisdom with a rich and colorful imagination. Written in a prose of almost biblical simplicity and beauty, it is the story of a soul's long quest in search of he ultimate answer to the enigma of man's role on this earth. As a youth, the young Indian Siddhartha meets the Buddha but cannot be content with a disciple's role: he must work out his own destiny and solve his own doubt—a tortuous road that carries him through the sensuality of a love affair with the beautiful courtesan Kamala, the temptation of success and riches, the heartache of struggle with his own son, to final renunciation and self-knowledge. The name "Siddhartha" is one often given to the Buddha himself—perhaps a clue to Hesse's aims in contrasting the traditional legendary figure with his own conception, as a European (Hesse was Swiss), of a spiritual explorer."Article| Hermann Hesse| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Siddhartha
☯ Full Synopsis : "Siddhartha is a 1922 novel by Hermann Hesse that deals with the spiritual journey of self-discovery of a man named Siddhartha during the time of the Gautama Buddha. The book, Hesse's ninth novel, was written in German, in a simple, lyrical style. It was published in the U.S. in 1951 and became influential during the 1960s. Hesse dedicated the first part of it to Romain Rolland and the second to Wilhelm Gundert, his cousin. The word Siddhartha is made up of two words in the Sanskrit language, siddha (achieved) ] artha (what was searched for), which together means "he who has found meaning (of existence)" or "he who has attained his goals." In fact, the Buddha's own name, before his renunciation, was Siddhartha Gautama, Prince of Kapilavastu. In this book, the Buddha is referred to as "Gotama."

♥ Book Title : Steppenwolf
☯ Full Synopsis : "Thomas Wayne presents a fresh new translation of this classic that is a particular favorite of young adults confronting life's deepest questions and equally liberating for readers facing a mid-life crisis. Basil Creighton's 1929 version (revised in 1963 by Joseph Mileck) is the best-known version in English; it skips words, smoothes out long, involved passages, unnecessarily "improves" the text – all things Thomas Wayne refuses to do. As with his already published translations of Nietzsche's Thus Spake Zarathustra, Ecce Homo, and The Antichrist, he emphasizes a strict adherence and reverence for the literal – a Hesse for the 21st century, meaningful and faithful to the original."Article| Hermann Hesse| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Understanding Hermann Hesse
☯ Full Synopsis : "Written for the new generation of students and general readers now discovering the novelist, Understanding Hermann Hesse unravels the stylistic mysteries that traditionally have complicated interpretation of the noted German writer. Tusken clarifies the web of structural patterns that distinguish the Hesse canon; he also reveals the timelessness of the writer's thematic concerns and the timeliness - given the religious experimentation of the current age - of his spiritual quest. Making the case that Hesse deserves renewed, more thoughtful attention from critics and scholars, Tusken identifies the themes that tie seemingly disparate novels together. He sheds light on often overlooked nuances of duality motifs and image-metaphor variations that characterize Hesse's progressive thematic continuum. In addition, Tusken focuses on the importance of a biographical approach in understanding this self-proclaimed confessional writer. Recounting major events in Hesse's life, Tusken appraises their effect on the novelist's search for self and for the meaning of human existence."Article| Lewis W. Tusken| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Sidarto (Mondliteraturo en Esperanto)
☯ Full Synopsis : ""Sidarto" ("Siddhartha") is an allegorical novel by German writer Hermann Hesse that deals with the spiritual journey of a boy (and man) during the time of the Buddha. -- En 1922, post multjara okupigho pri hinduismo kaj budhismo, la germana kaj svisa verkisto Hermann Hesse (1877-1962; Nobel-premio en 1946) publikigis sian romanon "Sidarto. Hinda poezia rakonto." La eventoj en la libro kondukas nin proksimume al la jaro 500 a.K., al la tempo de la fondinto de budhismo, Gotamo Budho. Ni sekvas la vivon de samtempulo de Gotamo, Sidarto, kaj ties serchon de atmano, t.e. de la nedetruebla, unueca kaj eterna esenco de la spirito. La romano, konsistanta el du partoj kun kvar kaj ok chapitroj, strukture pli-malpli sekvas bazajn principojn de la budhisma instruo, la "Kvar noblajn verojn" kaj la "Noblan okeran vojon." -- "Sidarto" estas la nau'a romano de Hermann Hesse. Ghi estas rigardata de kelkaj kiel simpligita priskribo de hindaj religioj kaj filozofioj el okcidenta vidpunkto, sed entuziasme akceptita de aliaj kiel kreema literatura interpreto de budhismaj principoj; kaj la usona verkisto Henry Miller ech konstatis: "Krei Budhon, kiu superas la ghenerale akceptitan Budhon, estas nekredebla faro, ghuste por germano." -- La traduko de Detlef Karthaus nuancite redonas la simplecon kaj poeziecon de la germana originalo."Article| Hermann Hesse| Statement ..."
