Overview

First published in 1922, Hermann Hesse's Siddhartha is the tale of a young Indian priest who searches for personal enlightenment throughout his life. Although steeped in the mysticism of Hindu traditions, this classic is, above all, about Siddhartha's search for independence from all teachings and freedom from all earthly knowledge. Siddhartha struggles with ignorance, prayer, loyalty, friendship, and desire during his quest for the essence of human existence, all the while seeking to understand truth through his experiences. His growth and revelations have enthralled and inspired readers for decades.

This Prestwick House Literary Touchstone Edition includes a glossary and reader's notes to help the modern reader contend both with Hesse's philosophical points and Siddhartha's journey.
