Overview

Nietzsche regarded 'Thus Spoke Zarathustra' as his most important work, and his story of the wandering Zarathustra has had enormous influence on subsequent culture. Nietzsche uses a mixture of homilies, parables, epigrams and dreams to introduce some of his most striking doctrines, including the Overman, nihilism, and the eternal return of the same. This edition offers a new translation by Adrian Del Caro which restores the original versification of Nietzsche's text and captures its poetic brilliance. Robert Pippin's introduction discusses many of the most important interpretative issues raised by the work, including who is Zarathustra and what kind of 'hero' is he and what is the philosophical significance of the work's literary form? The volume will appeal to all readers interested in one of the most original and inventive works of modern philosophy.

I love Nietzsche’s work so I am probably biased. Thus Spoke Zarathustra is a tough read but it is worth it. If you want to read something that will make you think then you can’t get much better than this.

Does the writing seem immoral? You have to keep an open mind.

Do people even inspect their ebook before reviewing nowadays? This edition has many gratuitious mistakes that any idiot should be able to notice Then again this is the place where some high schooler claims that Nietzsche "literally changed his life" while not even capitalizing or using punctualization properly so what can you expect lol
