Publisher Description

The essay is a scathing critique of the German composer Richard Wagner, whom Nietzsche had previously admired, but later came to despise. Nietzsche argues that Wagner's music represents a decadent and degenerate form of art, which promotes a nihilistic and life-denying worldview. He also accuses Wagner of promoting a kind of fake heroism, which he believes is dangerous and misleading. Overall, "The Case of Wagner" is a powerful critique of Wagner and his artistic legacy, and a provocative exploration of the nature of art and its relationship to human culture and values. Read in English, unabridged.

About Friedrich Nietzsche

Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900) was a nineteenth-century German-born philosopher and classical philologist. He wrote critical texts on religion, morality, contemporary culture, philosophy, and science, using a distinctive German language style. In 1889 he exhibited symptoms of insanity and lived his remaining years in the care of his mother and sister. His ideas exercised a major influence on several prominent European philosophers, including Martin Heidegger, Albert Camus, and Jean-Paul Sartre.
