Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: At various periods of his life Nietzsche designated different written and unwritten books of his as his principal work. The composition of some of them never advanced very far, and whilst in the midst of his Transvaluation of all Values, the First Part of which is the A ntichrist, he was forever disabled by an incurable disease. If one has a right to speak of the principal work of a mental life that never reached its goal, but was suddenly crippled in mid-career, the strange fact appears, that Nietzsche smasterpiece is not one of his purely philosophical books, but a work, half philosophy, half fiction; half an ethical sermon, half a story; a book serio-jocular and scientific-fantastical; historico-satirical, and realistico-idealistic ;a novel embracing worlds and ages and, at the same time, expressing a pure essence of Nietzsche, his astounding prosepoem Thus Spake Zarathustra. Thus Spake Zarathustra is without doubt the strangest product of modern German literature; and that says a good deal. If it is to be compared with other works of World Literature, perhaps it is nearest the Three Baskets of Buddhism, the Tripitaka.
