First published between 1883 and 1891, this philosophical novel is written in a distinct and original style which combines dialogue with verse. It established Nietzsche as a bold and original thinker; a reputation that would only be enhanced by later works such as Beyond Good and Evil.
Thus Spoke Zarathustra has several recurring themes, placing the main character - the creator of one of the first monotheistic faiths - in a story which deals with ideas such as the "eternal recurrence of the same", the parable on the "death of God", and the "prophecy" of the Übermensch. This combination proved potent in philosophic circles, with the text passionately discussed in academic circles to this day.
As well as its digestible translation, the book also contains an introduction by the sister of Friedrich Nietzsche, Elizabeth Forster-Nietzsche, explaining her sibling's convictions and motivations behind authoring this philosophic book.
