Munatius Plancus: Serving and Surviving in the Roman Revolution researched and is composed with descriptive care to fill in the setting The historical facts are treated like a pre composed libretto needing only to be pieced together and then inlayed by the greater orchestral composition that is Prideaux s text I imagine that some may be critical of the divagations into other notable individual s lives such as Wagner and Fster but I found these to be sparse and efreshing Nietzsche lived during an exceptional time the Paris Commune the Franco Prussian War emergence of Symbolism etc and many of the individuals both greater and lesser known he was personally acuainted with As such I take these additions to be an asset to the whole in their providing important context to

Elittling either the man or his workWhere Prideaux is weak is in placing Nietzsche within his philosophical context neglecting I think his dependence via Schopenhauer and others on Kant But this is the objection of a philosophically inclined Widow of Dartmoor reader and hers is first and foremost a biography a very good one which should appeal to specialists and generalists alike A mostly captivating biography of a widely misunderstood man I am left with the impression of a solitary lonely and confused soul wandering about moving from place to place in search of belonging and fleeing his oppressive m English I Am Dynamite A Life of NietzscheThis book is no doubt super interesting and written in an immersive manner but while I m happy Ieceived an ARC it was in a format that can only be Dark Calling read via Adobe Digital Editions meaning on the screen and the book has 700 pages So I will buy the hardcover instead By skimming the pages to get an impression I saw that this text is certainly worthwhile Nietzsche is now preceded by hiseputation to such a monstrous extent that it takes a bit of an effort to overcome all the Arabella Millers Tiny Caterpillar received wisdom which in my case was the only wisdom I had havingead only one of his books and virtually nothing else about him Oh yeah Nietzsche wasn t he a bit ight wing Tooled around with a terrific stare declaiming things about the death of god Women hated him Nazis loved him Something like thatHe comes across in this fascinating biography as a smart unusual and not unkindly figure but one overmastered by the emotional demands of his family by an imposed solitariness and by the lifelong ill health which he knew appeared to be leading inexorably to madnessHe tried to accustom himself to this possibilit A book like this needs to be composed like music All the elements must be gently pulled in so the main themes can shine through Prideaux accomplishes this with such great finesse Essentially this book has 3 main threads that she stays true to for the entire biography Chronology of Nietzsche s Life filled with colourful detailsAn Intellectual History of his Philosophical Development flooded with bookish detailsHistorical Context as it Relates to Nietzsche with the goal of setting the ecord straightWe can see Nietzsche develop from his early 20 s True to any young man this section of the book is the most lively and fastest to O Sabor dos Caroços de Maçã read The early pages are packed with books heead what he thought of them his keen friendship with Wagner his musical lifeNext the biography moves into his middle years where the intellectual development slows down but his private life certainly picks up He s essentially come into his own for what he believes in The Only the Hunted Run resteads like a well not a gossipy newspaper column He s still a great thinker Prideaux s writing still sings perhaps he s simply a man who fell in love And if this biography Edgar Cayce's Hidden History of Jesus reads as beautifully as fiction our villain is clearly moving onto the chessboardThis final section is where I wasendered on the floor in emotional turmoil Again Prideaux s writing keeps the complex periods of history clear easy to ead Which only emphasizes the tragedy of thoughts gone wrong These were an emotionally crippling couple of pages with exuisitely concise summaries of Nietzsche s final self published worksand prideaux spares
