Thus Spake ZarathustraA Book for All and None
Friedrich Nietzsche, translated from the German by Michael Hulse, introduction by Joanna Kavenna
Michael Hulse’s translation of this extraordinary work feels absolutely fresh and true. As in his poetry, all the words feel new-minted and authentic, full of energy and understanding. As Zarathustra says, ‘The self is always listening and seeking’: reading this version of his story is like seeing the colours of an Old Master for the first time.
—Ruth Padel, Professor of Poetry, King’s College London
It is often said that poetry is what is lost in translation. Given that Michael Hulse is both a major poet and one of the great translators of German literature, it is not surprising that he has done full justice to Thus Spake Zarathustra. English-speaking readers are indebted to him for a sparkling, transparent rendering of Nietzsche’s poetic philosophical masterpiece.
