Notes on thus spoke Zarathustra: Anthony M. Ludovici
Meant to be read alongside Friedrich Nietzsche’s Thus Spoke Zarathustra, these notes by famous British polyglot and Nietzsche student Anthony Mario Ludovici are perhaps the most incisive and penetrating analyses of the German philosopher’s famous work ever committed to text. Ludovici, a talented author and philosopher in his own right, was completely fluent in German, and studied Nietzsche’s works in their original German, and translated many of his major writings into English. There were therefore few, if any, English-speaking intelligentsia as familiar with Nietzsche’s works as Ludovici. In this work, Ludovici provides a section-by-section analysis of Thus Spoke Zarathustra, providing along the way not only his interpretation in the light of his extensive knowledge of Nietzsche’s other writings, but also many helpful facts and explanations of obscure (to the English reader) references made in the text.
