The Birth of Tragedy and the Case of Wagner
Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche
Publisher: Vintage BooksFormat: Paperback
The Birth of Tragedy (1872) was Nietzsche's first book. Its youthful faults were exposed by Nietzsche in the brilliant 'Attempt at a Self-Criticism' which he added to the new edition of 1886.The Case of Wagner (1888) was one of Nietzsche's last books, and his wittiest. In attitude and style it is diametrically opposed to The Birth of Tragedy. Both works transcend their ostensible subjects and deal with art and culture, as well as the problems of the modern age generally.
