Demian, the story of Emil Sinclair's youth by Hermann Hesse( Book )

8 editions published between 1919 and 2005 in German and held by 26 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

Europe, after the Great War. Harry Haller, solitary intellectual, is beset by reflections on his being ill suited for the world of everyday regular people, specifically for frivolous bourgeois society. All his life Harry has feared his dual nature--being both human and beast--so he has decided to die on his 50th birthday, which is soon. The mysterious Hermine, who takes him dancing, introduces him to jazz, to the beautiful and whimsical Maria, and guides him into the hallucinations of the Magic Theater, which seem to take him into Hell. Hermine rescues Harry from his solipsism, but can humor and sin lead to salvation, thus saving modern man? The producers were attempting to make "the first Jungian film," and the requisite special effects, cutting-edge at the time, required seven years of complicated pre-production
