Siddhartha

Hermann Hesse

With parallels to the enlightenment of the Buddha, Hesse's "Siddhartha" is the story of a young Brahmin's quest for the ultimate reality. Steeped in the tenets of both psychoanalysis and Eastern mysticism, "Siddhartha" presents an original view of man and culture, and the arduous process of self-discovery that leads to reconciliation, harmony, and peace.

Publisher Description

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 dispair, Siddhartha comes to a river where he hears a unique sound. This sound signals the true beginning of life - the beginning of suffering, rejection, peace and, finally, wisdom.
