What is the meaning of a hero in a story A story would never be a satisfactory story without a hero and without a journey a hero would never be existed In every story theres a meaning to the journey of the hero The meaning of the journey can be really important its something that would open up the mind of the book to the reader Significantly the meaning of the story would teach the reader either of everyday life struggles or the true meaning of life Most of the time the author would express such thing through the actions of the hero and not through the mind of the hero But in Herman Hesses point of view its a whole new different heros story In Hesses story he did not express the teaching of life through the heros actions but actually through the heros mind Hesses most respectable work is Siddhartha in which he used a young Brahmin Indian Siddhartha to expresses his intellect In Siddhartha there is no expression through the action of the hero but only through the language of the hero or through the thought of the hero Hesse expresses that everyones has a journey in their life such as the Brahmin has a journey to reach Nirvana to become the Illustrious One The significant thing of Hesses intellect is that he uses only Siddharthas journey to express what he wanted to tell his reader of self-knowledge in the Buddhisms world even though Hesse is not from the Buddhisms world In the beginning Hesse expresses that Siddhartha is just an ordinary Brahmin but also a clever and handsome one At first Siddhartha did not know the real meaning of life he was never happy for most of his life Siddhartha was not happy until he set out a journey with his friend Govinda and by himself to find out whats this happiness that hes missing As his journey continue
