Hermann Hesse wrote Siddhartha after he traveled to India in the 1910s. It tells the story of a young boy who travels the country in a quest for spiritual enlightenment in the time of Guatama Buddha. It is a compact, lyrical work, which reads like an allegory about the finding of wisdom.

L'intrigue de Siddharta est volontairement assez évasive sur l'époque, mais se déroule en Inde où l'on suit le parcours initiatique du personnage éponyme, un fils de brahmane, soit un membre de la caste des religieux et/ou érudits. En quête de sagesse, Siddharta s'oppose à son père et se met à voyager pour atteindre son but. S'ensuivront plusieurs époques, pendant lesquelles il sera tour à tour mendiant, commerçant, passeur, avant que ses expériences anciennes le rattrapent.

Tout l'intérêt de suivre la route de Siddharta n'est pas dans l'histoire qu'il raconte mais dans le but qu'il cherche à atteindre.

Review of 'Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse' on 'Goodreads'

4 stars

It is a book that drives the reader to have the same revelation that the protagonist has, a philosophical buddhist maxim.
Siddharta is obviously the precursor of Stepdenwolf, and reading that book made me have a more clair vision about this one, wich is amazing. The Stepenwolf is a german townman version of Siddhartha.

Esse livro é muito interessante por guiar o leitor a ter a mesma revelação que o protagonista tem, revelação esta que é a máxima do budismo Indiano, julgado o legítimo por muitos dos críticos da época do lançamento do livro.
Sidarta é claramente um precursor filosófico do Lobo da Estepe, que tem uma redescoberta existencial durante todo o livro, tornando-se uma versão citadina do Sidarta. Ler este livro me proporcionou um entendimento melhor do Lobo da Estepe.
