This paper briefly compares and contrasts Hermann Hesse's treatment of the life and message of Buddha and the rise of Buddha Siddhartha with the treatment of these important matters as they are dealt with in an extensive article in the fifteenth volume of the Encyclopedia Britannica. Chiefly, the paper argues that Hesse's rendering of Buddha and of Buddhism is less historical and focuses upon Siddhartha Buddha as a Europeanized Byronic figure who eschews the disciples he allegedly had according to the surviving historical record.
