Demian, the story of Emil Sinclair's youth by Hermann Hesse ( Book )
65 editions published between 1919 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 3,269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This first major novel by Nobel Prize-winning author Hermann Hesse incorporates a theme he returned to again and again in most of his works: the fundamental duality of existence. The youthful protagonist, Emil Sinclair, however, his older friend, Max Demian, manages to both clarify and complicate Sinclair's confusion about life's conflicting values. Recounted in engaging prose, rich in sympathy and imagination, this brilliant exploration of the polarities of human nature has retained its remarkable power as a poignant statement of the terrors and torments of adolescence

Narcissus and Goldmund by Hermann Hesse ( Book )
53 editions published between 1930 and 2006 in 4 languages and held by 2,757 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
First published in 1930, Narcissus and Goldmund is the story of two diametrically opposite men: one, an ascetic monk firm in his religious commitment, and the other, a romantic youth hungry for worldly experience. Hesse was a great writer in precisely the modern sense: complex, subtle, allusive: alive to the importance of play. Narcissus and Goldmund is his very best. What makes this short book so limitlessly vast is the body-and-soul-shaking debate that runs through it, which it has the honesty and courage not to resolve: between the flesh and spirit, art and scientific or religious speculation, action and contemplation

In this fictional memoir, the renowned composer Kuhn recounts his tangled relationships with two artists - his friend Heinrich Muoth, a brooding, self-destructive opera singer, and the gentle, self-assured Gertrude Imthor. Kuhn is drawn to Gertrude upon their first meeting, but Gertrude falls in love with Heinrich, to whom she is introduced when Kuhn auditions them for the leads in his new opera. Hopelessly ill-matched, Gertrude and Heinrich have a disastrous marriage that leaves them both ruined.

Demian : die Geschichte von Emil Sinclairs Jugend by Hermann Hesse ( Book )
252 editions published between 1919 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 1,308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Wie alle Hauptwerke Hermann Hesses hat auch der Demian, den der damals 40-jährige Autor mitten im Ersten Weltkrieg schrieb, eine ebenso ungewöhnliche wie spannende Entstehungs- und Wirkungsgeschichte. Daß dieses im Herbst 1917 vollendete Buch erst im Juni 1919, ein halbes Jahr nach Kriegsende, veröffentlicht wurde, lag an der Unbekanntheit des Verfassers. Denn Hesse hatte das Manuskript dem Verlag als das Erstlingswerk eines kranken jungen Dichters empfohlen, des zeitkritischen Poeten Emil Sinclair, der bisher nur in Zeitungen und Zeitschriften durch pazifistische Mahnrufe und Erzählungen aufgefallen war (die gleichfalls von Hesse stammten). Doch trotz des Inkognitos erlebte das Buch eine geradezu stürmische Aufnahme und wurde noch im Erscheinungsjahr mit dem Fontane-Preis für das beste Erstlingswerk eines Nachwuchsautors ausgezeichnet. Thomas Mann verglich die elektrisierende Wirkung des Buches mit der von Goethes Werther, da es "mit unheimlicher Genauigkeit den Nerv der Zeit traf und eine ganze Jugend, die wähnte aus ihrer Mitte sei ihr ein Künder ihres tiefsten Lebens entstanden, zu dankbarem Entzücken hinriß". Bis zur Entdeckung des Pseudonyms im Mai 1920 erschienen drei Auflagen, denen dann unter Hesses eigenem Namen zu seinen Lebzeiten noch 93 weitere folgten. - Verlag

Unterm Rad : Roman by Hermann Hesse ( Book )
235 editions published between 1900 and 2013 in 7 languages and held by 1,141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Unterm Rad beschreibt das Schicksal eines begabten Kindes, dem der Ehrgeiz seines Vaters und der Lokalpatriotismus seiner Heimatstadt eine Rolle aufnötigen, die Ihm nicht entspricht und es 'unters Rad' drängt. "Schreibend der Jugend die Würde zu geben, die ihr im Leben verweigert wurde", notiert Peter Handke nach der Lektüre in sein Tagebuch, während Arthur Eloesser 1906 die Erstausgabe mit den Worten begrüßte: "Der Roman enthält ungefähr eine Anleitung für Eltern, Vormünder und Lehrer, wie man einen begabten jungen Menschen am zweckmäßigsten zugrunde richtet." Neben Robert Musils Die Verwirrungen des Zöglings Törless ist 'Unterm Rad' die nachhaltigste Anklage gegen das starre Erziehungsritual zu Beginn des Industriezeltalters
