ABSURD - a film and literary production house that is passionately committed to creating and appreciating the finest works of art and literature - has now introduced the Pure Wisdom series that intends to be a collection of the greatest literature - fiction and nonfiction - that awakened and have still been awakening mankind. This is the first book of Pure Wisdom series; it collects two finest literary works of all time - Franz Kafka´s novella, The Metamorphosis, and Hermann Hesse´s novel, Siddhartha. Kafka´s The Metamorphosis is one of the greatest literary works in which the protagonist, a travelling salesman, wakes up one day to discover he has been transformed into a giant insect. The absurdity of life in The Metamorphosis shakes us all terribly with some question of our very existence - why are we here? What purpose does our existence have? Does it depend on what others think of us or are we valuable enough in our helpless existences to overcome the obstacles of perception? Siddhartha is one of the finest works of Hesse and one of the greatest books ever written. The novel is immensely beautiful; it deals with the spiritual journey of self-discovery of a man named Siddhartha during the time of the Gautama Buddha; a man who wants to know his true self completely. 1.

Hermann Hesse´s famous and influential novel Siddhartha is perhaps the most important and compelling allegory produced in the last hundred years. Integrating Eastern and Western spiritual traditions with psychoanalysis and philosophy, this strangely simple tale, written with a deep and moving empathy for humanity, has touched the lives of millions since its original publication in 1922. Set in India, Siddhartha is the story of a young Brahmin´s search for ultimate reality after meeting with the Buddha. His quest takes him from a life of decadence to asceticism, through the illusory joys of sensual love with a beautiful courtesan and of wealth and fame to the painful struggles with his son and the ultimate wisdom of renunciation. 1.
