9780486406534: Siddharta (Dover Thrift Editions)

Webster's paperbacks take advantage of the fact that classics are frequently assigned readings in English courses. By using a running English-to-Swedish thesaurus at the bottom of each page, this edition of Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse was edited for three audiences. The first includes Swedish-speaking students enrolled in an English Language Program (ELP), an English as a Foreign Language (EFL) program, an English as a Second Language Program (ESL), or in a TOEFL? or TOEIC? preparation program. The second audience includes English-speaking students enrolled in bilingual education programs or Swedish speakers enrolled in English speaking schools. The third audience consists of students who are actively building their vocabularies in Swedish in order to take foreign service, translation certification, Advanced Placement? (AP?) or similar examinations. By using the Webster's Swedish Thesaurus Edition when assigned for an English course, the reader can enrich their vocabulary in anticipation of an examination in Swedish or English.

About the Author:

Hermann Hesse was born in 1877 in Calw, Germany. He was the son and grandson of Protestant missionaries and was educated in religious schools until the age of thirteen, when he dropped out of school. At age eighteen he moved to Basel, Switzerland, to work as a bookseller and lived in Switzerland for most of his life. His early novels included Peter Camenzind (1904), Beneath the Wheel (1906), Gertrud (1910), and Rosshalde (1914). During this period Hesse married and had three sons. During World War I Hesse worked to supply German prisoners of war with reading materials and expressed his pacifist leanings in antiwar tracts and novels. Hesse's lifelong battles with depression drew him to study Freud during this period and, later, to undergo analysis with Jung. His first major literary success was the novel Demian (1919). When Hesse's first marriage ended, he moved to Montagnola, Switzerland, where he created his best-known works: Siddhartha (1922), Steppenwolf (1927), Narcissus and Goldmund (1930), Journey to the East (1932), and The Glass Bead Game (1943). Hesse won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1946. He died in 1962 at the age of eighty-five.
