Overview

The Birth of Tragedy argues the importance of the tension between what Nietzsche called Apollonian and Dionysian forces. These contrasting forces enable a work of art to reveal the truth about human existence in such a way that we are able to bear the weight of its tragic wisdom.

The Birth of Tragedy offers an excellent point of entry into Nietzsche's corpus.
