Resumen del libro

Friedrich Nietzsche's most accessible and influential philosophical work, misquoted, misrepresented, brilliantly original and enormously influential, Thus Spoke Zarathustra is translated from the German by R.J. Hollingdale in Penguin Classics. Nietzsche was one of the most revolutionary and subversive thinkers in Western philosophy, and Thus Spoke Zarathustra remains his most famous and influential work.

It describes how the ancient Persian prophet Zarathustra descends from his solitude in the mountains to tell the world that God is dead and that the Superman, the human embodiment of divinity, is his successor. Nietzsche's utterance 'God is dead', his insistence that the meaning of life is to be found in purely human terms, and his doctrine of the Superman and the will to power were all later seized upon and unrecognisably twisted by, among others, Nazi intellectuals. With blazing intensity and poetic brilliance, Nietzsche argues that the meaning of existence is not to be found in religious pieties or meek submission to authority, but in an all-powerful life force: passionate, chaotic and free.

Frederich Nietzsche (1844-1900) became the chair of classical philology at Basel University at the age of 24 until his bad health forced him to retire in 1879. He divorced himself from society until his final collapse in 1899 when he became insane. A powerfully original thinker, Nietzsche's influence on subsequent writers, such as George Bernard Shaw, D.H.

Lawrence, Thomas Mann and Jean-Paul Sartre, was considerable. If you enjoyed Thus Spoke Zarathustra you might like Nietzsche's Beyond Good and Evil, also available in Penguin Classics. 'Enigmatic, vatic, emphatic, passionate, often breathtakingly insightful, his works together make a unique statement in the literature of European ideas' A.

Biografía del autor

Más conocido como filósofo, Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900) escribió una cantidad notable de poemas. Algunos de ellos fueron publicados en vida del autor, como los Idilios de Mesina (1882), aquellos insertos en La gaya ciencia (1882) y Así habló Zaratustra (1883) y los magistrales Ditirambos de Dioniso (1891). Otros muchos solo vieron la luz después de su muerte. Su poesía, enérgica, audaz y delicada, completa y acompaña su pensamiento filosófico: a través de ella no solo transitamos por algunas de las principales ideas de Nietzsche x{0026}#x02013;la voluntad de poder, el amor fati, el superhombrex{0026}#x02013; sino también algunos de los paisajes que enmarcaron el nacimiento de tales conceptos, desde las brumas germánicas a los estremecedores atardeceres sorrentinos.
