Although Friedrich Nietzsche is best known for his thunderous pronouncements about the death of god and the will to power, hidden within his writings is also a wealth of practical wisdom. Songs of Zarathustra condenses the heart of Nietzsche's ideas into a cycle of original poems, along with new translations of some of Nietzsche's own verse (marked below with an asterisk). Ordered chronologically from The Birth of Tragedy (1872) through Ecce Homo (1888), these poems track Nietzsche's growth as a thinker and writer. Above all, Songs of Zarathustra presents a fresh, positive perspective on Nietzsche's philosophy and its applications to living a full human life.
