Demian: The Story of Emil Sinclair’s Youth (Pushkin Press Classics)


Emil Sinclair is tormented by a constant battle between light and dark, purity and corruption, ignorance and knowledge. As a restless young man, he struggles to locate a path towards acceptance and serenity. Only under the friendship and guidance of the charismatic, otherworldly Max Demian does he discover an alternative way to think, and to live.

Demian transforms a young man’s coming-of-age story into a profoundly moving narrative of internal conflict and self-realization.
