Description

A new translation of Nietzsche’s seminal work by a prize-winning translator of W. G. Sebald, Goethe, Rilke, Herta Mu¨ller, and Elfriede Jelinek.

In Thus Spake Zarathustra, Nietzsche’s infamous protagonist sets off on a grand and noble quest to find meaning in a secular world and to live joyfully alongside the knowledge of death.

In this new translation by Michael Hulse-the first in English by a poet-Zarathustra is revealed in all his bold and ironic splendor as a man who prizes self-worth above all else as a moral code to live by.

Radical, uncategorizable, contradictory, and often humorous, Thus Spake Zarathustra is a grand celebration of human existence by one of the most influential thinkers of the past two centuries.
