Demian: Aus: Hermann Hesse. Sein Leben und sein Werk by Hugo Ball really liked it 4. Through his affair with Kamala the courtesan; his partnership with Kamaswami the businessman; his reveling in wealth, power, and sloth; his constant self-disgust; and his attempt to commit suicide, he leaves the realm of the flesh behind. And after his return to the river and Vasudeva the ferryman, his encounter with his son, and his last bout with anxious love and fearful concern, Siddhartha emerges transfigured, a wise, saintly figure given to his fellow humans in love and service; paradoxically, he has achieved self-transcendence through self-realization.
To accord his literary credo something of timeless, mythic validity, Hesse locates his tale in remote India of a time long past. To enhance the gospel quality of the tale, Hesse cultivates an antiquated, liturgical mode of expression reminiscent of both Pali scriptures and the Bible.

And to stress his equal concern with, and approbation of, each of the three areas of human experience, Hesse carefully adjusts manner to matter. This triadic structure is extended to the very mechanics of expression: to sentences, clauses, phrases, words, and paragraphs.
And in keeping with this three-beat pattern, Hesse even extends his customary projection of the actual self and one alternative to the actual self and three possibilities. And when Siddhartha becomes this ideal, Vasudeva leaves the scene, just as Demian vanished when Sinclair became his ideal self. Withdrawal, bitter self-hatred, a lusting for both death and raw life, and an experiencing of the bars and dance halls of Zurich in early were followed in mid by a return to Montagnola, his art, his ideals, and his solitude.
Hesse has his prose counterpart recount his experience in less strident detail and buffered by a touch of fantasy. In Der Steppenwolf, Haller—intellectual, writer, and uncompromising idealist, too long ascetically devoted to mental pursuits—becomes emotionally unhinged. His aloneness has become a torment, his freedom repugnant, and all his interests and ideals questionable. He is unable to continue in his estrangement, is tempted but not prepared to commit suicide, and will not compromise and join the throng.
He has no choice but to relax, to emerge from his isolation, and to seek relief in the world of the senses. Late one night, Haller meets Hermine, a well-groomed prostitute who responds sympathetically to his plight. At the outset of their involvement she informs him that she will make him fall in love with her, then will order him to kill her and will expect him to comply.
Siddhartha - Hermann Hesse (deutsch/englisch - German/English Edition)
In the interim she teaches Haller to dance, laugh, and live. She introduces him to handsome young Pablo, a jazz-band saxophonist, and arranges a bedroom friendship for him with the sensual Maria. Slipping back into a deep daze, he imagines a conversation with Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart , then a trial in which he is sentenced to eternal life for his imagined murder of an imaginary figure.
Sober again, Haller is prepared to resume the game of life, to suffer its agonies and senselessness once more, hopeful that he will someday be able to distinguish between ideas and appearance and to rise above it all and laugh. Thus, like every major Hesse tale before it, Der Steppenwolf ends abruptly and on a note of optimism. The embittered Haller was forgotten, and the dramatic tempo of Der Steppenwolf yielded to the more epic flow of Narziss und Goldmund.
In December , while putting the finishing touches on Narziss und Goldmund, Hesse began again to experience sharp qualms about himself, life, and art. Protagonist H. Like Demian and Hermine, Leo is both the admonishing and enlightening daimon and the more ideal alter ego, rendered visible. In the summer of , after four years together in their inadequate quarters in the Casa Camuzzi, Hesse and Dolbin moved into a house built nearby for their lifelong use by Hans C.
Bodmer, a wealthy patron. They were married on 14 November His life began to revolve almost ritually around his writing, reading, extensive correspondence, music, painting, and gardening. Hesse had permitted World War I to divert him from his conviction that an artist should divorce himself from politics, tend to his art, and nurture his humanitarian ideals; but his political activism had been of no advantage to himself, his art, or Germany.
He remained more mindful of his better judgment during the political mayhem of the s and World War II. Newspapers and periodicals throughout Germany suddenly lost interest in his literary comments. A letter written to the journal in self-defense only attracted more invective. As a result of this silence, some of his older and politically innocuous works continued to be published throughout the war; but after the war broke out in , rationed paper was suddenly no longer available for his new books. What had been novelty and abundance in the Casa Camuzzi became primarily recollection and collection in the Casa Bodmer.
He received the Gottfried Keller Prize of Zurich in Returning to his originally envisaged series of biographies soon after completion of Die Morgenlandfahrt in the spring of , and almost immediately questioning and modifying his unconditional homage and dedication of , Hesse proceeded slowly and tenaciously through the most challenging of his many literary ventures: Das Glasperlenspiel, which was completed in The book, purportedly written in the year , comprises an introductory history of the Glass Bead Game; a biography of Josef Knecht, the celebrated Master of the Game in the educational province of Castalia circa ; a cluster of his poems; and three of his conjectural autobiographies, official assignments preceding his admission to the Order of the Glass Bead Game.
In Das Glasperlenspiel, the final installment of his serial projection of the self, autobiography furnished the matter for a world of tomorrow. Knecht treasures seclusion during this period in his career as much as had Hesse; the game becomes the passion for him that writing became for Hesse, and he achieves the fame that Hesse gained before World War I. This interim is for Knecht the hiatus of sociopolitical involvement it had been for Hesse: Knecht commits himself to a reconciliation of Castalia and the Catholic Church, just as Hesse had committed himself to the cause of peace.
These are for Knecht the years of dedicated application, major achievements, severe conflict, and drastic decision, as they had been for Hesse. Knecht now dedicates himself wholeheartedly to the bead game as Hesse had devoted himself to his writing: his seven grand annual games are counterparts to the seven major tales published by Hesse from Demian to Die Morgenlandfahrt.
Success notwithstanding, the polar possibilities of life gradually became for Knecht the crucial and disturbing concern they had become for Hesse. He is caught between isolation and contact, reflection and involvement, and the mind and the body, just as Hesse had been. He, like Hesse, is left convinced that he has become an artist but not a human among humans. He also becomes convinced that Castalia is less than the impeccable ideal he had believed it to be, just as Hesse had lost his unqualified faith in the timeless realm of art and thought courted in Der Steppenwolf and extolled in Die Morgenlandfahrt.
With their protagonists located in widely dispersed times and places, but similarly engrossed in thought and moved by ideals, the novels from Demian to Die Morgenlandfahrt were an unwitting expression of a growing interest and deepening belief in a universal spiritual-intellectual continuum. In Das Glasperlenspiel, Hesse adds a philosophy of history to the psychology of history that he had proposed in the essays in Blick ins Chaos , A Glance into Chaos to account for what he believed to be the inevitable and imminent cultural collapse of Western Europe.
He gave his mornings and afternoons to gardening, painting, and his enormous correspondence, and his evenings to books, music, and writing. He left Montagnola as infrequently as he had in the s; and then only briefly, and never for places beyond Switzerland, not even when awarded the Goethe Prize of Frankfurt am Main and the Nobel Prize in Literature in For the next decade he enjoyed both political and literary approval as never before.
His works could not be printed fast enough, and the swell of books, pamphlets, dissertations, articles, and reviews surpassed by far, in both quality and quantity, all the secondary literature of the preceding four decades. This reverential acclaim peaked in the mid s, then declined rapidly. By the early s, Hesse was again relegated to the limbo of spent writers. Only a relatively small following of enthusiasts continued to read him, and there was just as sudden and sharp a decrease in scholarly attention.
His books again became best-sellers, and he again received intense and appreciative scholarship and was publicly celebrated throughout Germany. But by the early s, despite the vigorous promotion of his publisher, this wave of popularity had receded. Reviews had been politely condescending or by and large superciliously negative, and none of the books found a reading public.
Little wonder that the English-speaking world raised its eyebrows when Hesse was awarded the Nobel Prize. Few knew who Hesse was, and to most of these few he was just another odd and suspect German writer. For the next fifteen years the critics were generally unimpressed, and the reading public apparently had better things to do than to read Hesse, Nobel Prize winner though he was. Publishers, however, alerted to a potential market by the prize, began to scramble for translations. Book after book became best-sellers, and their author was a sensation, by far the most popular of foreign writers.
Unprepared for this sudden swell of interest in Hesse, with no backlog of unpublished translations, publishers had to make do with the nine novels available in English by By the tide that had begun to sweep across America in the mid s and that had peaked in had spent itself. Before the scholarly field was oblivious to Hesse; in the years following, it gradually picked up momentum with the appearance of half a dozen books and pamphlets, twenty-seven dissertations, and some sixty articles. Scholarly activity accelerated in the mid s and crested in the mid s, a few years after the reading community had already begun to lose interest in Hesse.
As many dissertations, more articles, and four times as many books and pamphlets were written from the mid s as in the preceding two decades. This activity then tapered off to become a slow but steady flow. By the turn of the century, American Hesse scholarship was second in quantity only to its German counterpart and had in quality surpassed it.
With the national and international recognition that accompanied the Nobel Prize, Hesse became the dean of German letters, a celebrity feted in Germany, Switzerland, and Austria upon the occasion of his seventieth birthday and on every fifth anniversary thereafter. But Hesse was far less elated by this official and popular acclaim than he was troubled by gradually declining health.

Though quite fragile by the late s, he continued to paint and to write. For the septuagenarian Hesse, the world of memory gradually became the fascination and consolation that the world of the imagination had been at the beginning of his career. Remembrance of things past produced a steady flow of memorials, congratulatory articles, reminiscences, ruminations, and circular letters.
These publications were complemented by more than a dozen volumes of letters and dozens of volumes of miscellanies in the series Suhrkamp Taschenbuch, Insel Taschenbuch, and Bibliothek Suhrkamp. Worldwide interest in Hesse continued to simmer up to and beyond the turn of the century. The success of the biennial Internationales-Hermann-Hesse-Kolloquium in Calw - is reflective of this continued interest. The eleventh meeting of the colloquium in May attracted the usual crowd of committed laymen and scholars.
This continued active interest in Hesse was confirmed in by an impressive spurt of republications and new publications by and about Hesse and by the plethora of varied worldwide celebrations upon the occasion of the th anniversary of his birth. Similar swells of popularity at future times are not unthinkable. Fischer, ;. Horst Kliemann and Karl H.
