Overview

"Zarathustra" was Nietzsche's masterpiece, the first comprehensive statement of his mature philosophy, and the introduction of his influential and well-known (and misunderstood) ideas including the "overman" or "superman" and the "will to power." It is also the source of Nietzsche's famous (and much misconstrued) statement that "God is dead." This classic was due for an update and overhaul. A considerable part of Nietzsche's genius is his ability to make hislanguage dance, and this is what becomes extraordinarily difficult to translate. Aphorist and punster Thomas Wayne puts the play back into this work.

What People are saying about this

Thomas Mann
Nietzche wrote stylistically dazzling books - works sparkling with audacious insults to his age, venturing into more and more radical psychology, radiating a more and more glaring white light... [He was] a thinker, psychologist, and master of language who revolutionized the whole atmosphere of his era.
