♥ Book Title : Siddhartha
☯ Full Synopsis : "Gautama Buddha, also known as Siddhartha Gautama, Shakyamuni, or simply the Buddha, was a sage on whose teachings Buddhism was founded. Born in the Shakya republic in the Himalayan foothills, Gautama Buddha taught primarily in northeastern India. Buddha means "awakened one" or "the enlightened one." "Buddha" is also used as a title for the first awakened being in an era. In most Buddhist traditions, Siddhartha Gautama is regarded as the Supreme Buddha of our age. This the story of the enlightenment of Siddhartha Gautama."Article| Hermann Hesse| 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 : Hermann Hesse's Fictions of the Self
☯ Full Synopsis : "This masterful synthesis of criticism and biography surveys all of Hermann Hesse's major works and many of his minor ones in relation to the intricate psychological design of his entire life history. Eugene Stelzig examines what it means to be an "autobiographical writer" by considering Hesse's fictions of the self as an exemplary instance of the relationship between life and art and between biography and autobiography. In a graceful and inviting style, he frees this major confessional writer from the confines of German culture and the status of "cult figure" of the 1960s, and situates him in the tradition of world literature and in a variety of literary, psychological, philosophical, and religious contexts. Three introductory chapters on autobiography and Hesse set the stage for a chronological study. Then follows a penetrating analysis of the balance between biographical fact and confessional fantasy in Hesse's long career, from the failed autobiography of his first literary success, Beneath the Wheel, through the protracted midlife crisis of the grotesque Steppenwolf period, to the visionary autobiography of his magisterial fictional finale, The Glass Bead Game. Originally published in 1988. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905."Article| Eugene L.

♥ 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 : In the Old Sun
☯ Full Synopsis : ""In the Old Sun, the "Sun" is a scruffy former tavern now employed as a poorhouse, where idlers sit around, living their past lives in the imagination. The narrator then turns to the earlier life of a man of talent and energy who falls victim to drink and is employed as the manager of the "Sun," who then begins to engage, sometimes quarrelsomely, with the other inmates, giving an opportunity for smaller stories within the story, some humorous, some sad. The men grate on one another, but they mourn as they die off"--"Article| Hermann Hesse| 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 ..."

♥ Book Title : The Prodigy
☯ Full Synopsis : ""Originally dating from 1905, is Hermann Hesse's bitter indictment of conventional education. It is the story of Hans Giebenrath, the brilliant young son of provincial bourgeois in southern Germany who becomes the first boy from his town to pass into a prestigious Protestant theological college. His spirit, however, is systematically broken by his parents and teachers; over-anxious about his success, they forget to consider his health and happiness. Subsiding into a fatal apathy, he is taken home for medical reasons. Here he falls in love, becomes an engineer's apprentice, learns to drink alcohol and eventually dies by drowning." "Out of his attitude to the treatment that he perceived was common within the German schooling system at the beginning of the twentieth century, Hesse developed his own deeply personal views on the value of Eastern education in developing the self."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
