Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Also sprach Zarathustra (Hardcover)
The mad classic, a great read. Warning -- this edition arrived at the house and to my surprise was the German language original. Oops. Nice thing to own, the Mrs can read it a bit to me. I reordered a translated version. Watch out (wachet auf?) when ordering from Amazon that you don't make the same (very minor) error. In any case, every one who likes ideas should read this work -- it proves that he was NOT a fascist nor an anti-Semite, but a free spirit libertarian concerned with all the cookie-cutter patriotism and national identity BS that substituted for real, individual passion in his 19th C. German world.. He resonates today. Also handy for understanding 2001: A Space Odyssey, to the extant that one is expected to understand that other work of genius poetry.
