Siddhartha (Wisehouse Classics Edition)

by Hermann Hesse

Siddhartha is a novel by Hermann Hesse that deals with the spiritual journey of self-discovery of a man named Siddhartha during the time of the Gautama Buddha. The book, Hesse’s ninth novel, was written in German, in a simple, lyrical style. It was published in the U.S. in 1951 and became influential during the 1960s. Hesse dedicated the first part of it to Romain Rolland and the second part to Wilhelm Gundert, his cousin.
The word Siddhartha is made up of two words in Sanskrit language, siddha (achieved) + artha (what was searched for), which together means “he who has found meaning (of existence)” or “he who has attained his goals.” In fact, the Buddha’s own name, before his renunciation, was Siddhartha Gautama, Prince of Kapilavastu. In this book, the Buddha is referred to as “Gotama”. (more on

Just Surviving Somehow

by C.E.A Brown

When your world suddenly falls apart and you find your self fighting just to exist.

“One day you come to realise, that not everything is what it seems. When you step into, the looking glass, to find the side that’s spent a life unseen. When you meet someone, you’ve been looking for, and find, they have been searching too, without knowing what it means. And that’s where I’ll find you; and where you will find me.”

Haunted with flashbacks that break through every day, and an eating disorder spiralling out of control, this is the first book of my poetry, that captures the year when â??it all came through’.

From the darkest moments, to learning how to fly again, this is a book about survival, written for survivors.

A Woman’s Pain

by Nora Dunne

A Woman’s Pain is a collection of poems by the author depicting suffering in silence. Through these poems you will feel the sadness and pain that brought these poems to life. The tears of yesterday scorch the pages of today, bringing to light depression, abuse, and mental illness.
Throughout this book you will feel the fight of a woman struggling with darkness. The isolation and loneliness she felt every day. Within each page is a glimpse into a silent world of pain. Where darkness creeps in and you begin to fall into nothing, losing yourself in the process. Many others have experienced the same pain. This collection is the voice to all those suffering, so that you know you’re not alone.

Sour Weeds and Poplar Trees

by Don Brillant

Sour Weeds and Poplar Trees is inspired by Don’s constant ridicule for a love of words and art, hobbies a ‘man’ should not pursue. Not a year went by during which his sexuality was not questioned.
By ignoring norms of the southern male, he became the taboo of every social realm he engaged himself in. Even through incessant criticism from parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles about how a man is supposed to act, he redefined the word for himself, and sought for others to adopt a new definition for themselves as well.
Explore with Brilliant as he uses eloquent prose to tell a story which integrates sorrow, anxiety, and redemption into a single work of art that frees the experience of an entire population whose story has gone unseen.

Eternity, Jehovah, Adam, Eva, Cains, Death, Sin This brief drama addressed to Lord Byron, whose Cain, a Mystery appeared in 1821, treats the themes of revenge, atonement, forgiveness, and self-annihilation through the reactions of Adam, Eve, Satan, and Jehovah to the first murder. The two plates of the work were etched in relief in 1822. William Blake (1757 – 1827) was a British poet, painter, visionary mystic, and engraver, who illustrated and printed his own books. Blake proclaimed the supremacy of the imagination over the rationalism and materialism of the 18th-century.

The Sweetest of Lies
