From the Publisher. A brilliant psychological portrait of a troubled young man's quest for self-awareness, this coming-of-age novel achieved instant critical and popular acclaim upon its 1919 publication. A landmark in the history of 20th-century literature, it reflects the author's preoccupation with the duality of human nature and the pursuit of spiritual fullfillment.

Reading it for the first time as a teenager, Demian fascinated me by allowing me to acknowledge and accept the conflict between good and evil, and the desire to break conventional norms to find one’s true self.
