The Birth of Tragedy:
Dedicated to Richard Wagner, The Birth of Tragedy is rich in Nietzche's current enthusiams for Greek literature and especially tragedy, for Schopenhauer and Wagner's Tristan and Isolde. Its central vision is the idea that "only as an aesthetic phenomenon are existence and the world justified." Making his celebrated distinction between the Apolline and the Dionysiac spirit, Nietzche presses us to consider why it is that we derive pleasure from tragic art, and what is the relationship between our experiences of suffering in life and in art. The Birth of Tragedy was his first book. Occasionally flawed and impetuous in argument, it is none the less a triumph of passionate energy and insight. [via]
