Self and Shadow in Hesse’s Siddhartha
A Psychoanalytical Study
Abrar Aziz, Milena Rampoldi (Herausgeber)
The book in hand is a true example of juxtaposing beautiful expression with logical argumentation. The diction, style and contents of the book do not, at any point, lead the reader astray from reading it and most of the readers, I am sure, will find this book as interesting as to finish it in just one sitting. The references made to Hesse’s biographical notes and textual allusions from his novel Siddhartha make it yet more alluring for, especially, the fan club of Bildungsroman novels and other writings related to self- actualization and individuation.
Since this is the first publication by this author in English language, I’d like to wish him all the best and hope to see more of his publications soon.
