2011 Reprint of 1948 Edition. Full facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. The main character of this classic novel, Emil Sinclair, is a young boy raised in a bourgeois home, amidst what is described as a Scheinwelt, a play on words that means "world of light" as well as "world of illusion." Emil's entire existence can be summarized as a struggle between two worlds: the show world of illusion (related to the Hindu concept of maya) and the real world, the world of spiritual truth. In the course of the novel, accompanied and prompted by his mysterious classmate 'Max Demian', he detaches from and revolts against the superficial ideals of the world of appearances and eventually awakens into a realization of self. The novel refers to the idea of Gnosticism, particularly the god Abraxas, showing the influence of Carl Jung's psychology. According to Hesse, the novel is a story of Jungian individuation, the process of opening up to one's unconsciousness.

Vilified by the British tabloid press as "The Wickedest Man in the World," Aleister Crowley (1875-1947) became a legend in his own lifetime. Decades ahead of his time, Crowley was a wealthy libertine, poet and intellectual who spent a fortune of 100,000 in the pursuit of spiritual enlightenment. Reviled during his lifetime as a monster, Crowley's reputation for evil has diminished as the social mores of Victorian England recede. But the legend of the Beast 666, the Wickedest Man in the World, persists, with the surprising result that it has spawned a Crowley cult of rock stars and fans who are more attracted to the legend than to Crowley himself! Of course, these are the ones that attract the most media attention. Unfortunately, this sensationalistic popularization of Crowley masks the real depth and range of Crowley's attainments. Secret Wisdom of 666 strips away the legend and reveals Crowley in a completely new light. 666 is an inspired work of Thelemic hermeneutics. Also available in hardcover.

This volume offers a substantial portion of Hesse's copious writings and is representative of his fundamental themes and interests. Includes Siddhartha, Hesse's most celebrated work, which reflects his lifelong studies of Oriental myth and religion, Demian, an inner journey which had an unprecedented impact on the youth of its day, plus other writings which show Hesse as a master of self-irony and the short-story form.

This is the first English-language edition of Klingsor's Last Summer, which was originally published in 1920, a year after Demian and two years before Siddhartha. The book has three parts: a story called A Child's Heart, followed by Klein and Wagner and Klingsor's Last Summer, Hesse's two longest and finest novellas. These novellas, along with Siddhartha (the three works were republished in 1931 under the title The Inward Way), are the first fruits of the period that began in the spring of 1919, when Hesse settled in the Ticino mountain village of Montagnola to start a new life without his wife and children. A Child's Heart, written in January 1919, in Basel, concerns the transmutation of a boy's innocence into knowledge of good and evil, and the painful guilt that accompanies this process. Both Klein and Wagner (written in May-June 1919, immediately after the arrival in Montagnola) and Klingsor's Last Summer (written shortly after) are set in a southern landscape that reflects Hesse's life that summer; both novellas have heroes who are more or less Hesse's age at the time; and in both the hero's death is preceded by a grand vision of unity in which the polarities of life are resoluved. Hesse exposes himself mercilessly in Klein and Wagner, a story of escape, wrenching loose, letting go. But the expressionist painter Klingsor is a more direct self-portrait of the Hesse of 1919.
