Nietzsche's relationship with Wagner has long been a source of
controversy and has given rise to a number of important studies,
including this major breakthrough in Nietzsche scholarship, first
published in 1982. In this work Hollinrake contends that the nature
and extent of the anti-Wagnerian pastiche and polemic in Thus Spake
Zarathustra is arguably the most important factor in the
association between the two. Thus Wagner, as the purveyor of a
particular brand of Schopenhauerian pessimism, is here revealed as
one of the principle sources -- and targets -- of Zarathustra.
Whilst addressed primarily to students of German Literature, this
book will also be of interest to musicians, philosophers and
students of the history of culture and ideas.
