Overview

Thus Spake Zarathustra is philosophical classic written by Friedrich Nietzsche and first published in 1885. Thus Spake Zarathustra is known as Nietzsche's most controversial and probably his most important work. The concepts that "God is Dead" and "Eternal Recurrence" with their attendant ramifications are major features of this work. Highly original and inventive, Thus Spake Zarathustra defies simple categorization. Part literature, part philosophy, it parodies both, in its stylistic resemblance to the New Testament and Pre-Socratic Greek writings. Through a fictionalized version the character Zarathustra, the legendary founder of Zoroasterianism, Nietzsche propounds a new and different version of moral philosophy. During the course of the story presented in this loosely structured narrative, Nietzsche develops and presents a contrary view of mankind: as lying somewhere between the apes and the ultimate Superman, or Ubermensch. Ranging from unsupported assumptions to rigorous argument from exposition to dialog to poetry, Thus Spake Zarathustra is a surprising, engaging and thought provoking look at the condition of mankind. Nietzsche himself considered this to be his most important work. His tragic end, in a state of complete mental breakdown, precluded any possibility that it would be superseded and raised a question of the association between madness and genius.

    Stranded

    She stalks in the forest, she black paws making no sound, when the time is right, she leaps up, she strong front pws landing on a wild turkey, the large bird strugles, but she ends its life with a quick bite.

    A book full of agony

    One of Nietzsche's top 3 books, I must disagree with the review written by the 17 year old above who fails to understand the fluidity of language and the reason why archaisms are just that. Who reads old english today anyway? (for me, the original of Beowulf was very difficult, but Seamus Heaney's modern interpretation is wonderful!) As Nietzsche would say, 'Den weg namlich -- den gibt es nicht!'
