Thus Spake Zarathustra Friedrich Nietzsche

translated by Thomas Common

This took me a while to read. Many of the sections I had to go back and re-read, either out of pure enjoyment or plain confusion. I can't pretend to understand everything in this Magnum Opus, but I'm not sure Nietzsche intended for the entirety to be comprehensible. The writing is grandiose, almost like a dramatic play or musical, and the philosophy he preaches comes in parable and metaphor. I very much enjoyed reading it, and will probably peruse through the pages once again.
