    In Siddhartha, Herman Hesse conveys a very profound message for all those who seek meaning in their lives. Though set in India, the concerns of Siddhartha are universal, expressing Hesse's general interest in the conflict between mind, body, and spirit. It is a story of a Brahmin boy who follows his heart and ventures out into the world to experience life as a pious Brahmin, a Samana, a rich merchant, a lover, and ordinary ferryman to a father - each life bringing a new awakening, bringing him closer to the truth until he is finally one with Buddha.

    Vowing at an early age "to be a poet or nothing at all", Hermann Hesse rebelled against formal education, focusing on a rigorous program of independent study that included literature, philosophy, art, and history. One result of these efforts was a series of novels that became counterculture bibles that remain widely influential today. Another was a body of evocative spiritual poetry. Published for the first time in English, these vivid, probing short works reflect deeply on the challenges of life.

    Ein Buch, dessen Tiefe in der kunstvoll einfachen und klaren Sprache verborgen liegt, eine Klarheit, die vermutlich die geistige Erstarrung jener literarischen Philister aus dem Konzept bringt, die immer so genau wissen, was gute und was schlechte Literatur ist. Siddhartha ist für mich eine wirksamere Medizin als das Neue Testament. Henry Miller drückt in diesen Worten die Faszination aus, die die Geschichte des Brahmanensohns Siddhartha noch heute ausübt.

    Narziß und Goldmund sind Freunde, wie sie unterschiedlicher nicht sein könnten: Der eine ein Denker, selbstbeherrscht, rational und prinzipientreu. Der andere ein kindlicher Träumer, Genießer und Sinnenmensch, voller Lebenslust und tiefem Gefühl. Der eine führt ein strenges Leben im Kloster, der andere begibt sich auf Wanderschaft in die Welt. Und doch knüpfen gerade ihre Gegensätzlichkeit und Bewunderung für den jeweils anderen das Band ihrer Freundschaft. In ihren Gesprächen zeigt sich Hesse als ein Maler mit Worten und ein tiefer Kenner der menschlichen Seele.
