Friedrich Nietzsche: The Birth of Tragedy (Unabridged)

The Birth of Tragedy out of the Spirit of Music

One

Now, just as the philosopher behaves…

In the same place Schopenhauer also described for us…

Two

In these Greek festivals…

Three

In order to be able to live…

Four

This deification of individuation…

Five

The plastic artist, as well as his relation, the epic poet…

Schopenhauer, who did not hide from the difficulty…

Six

If we are thus entitled to consider the lyrical poem…

Seven

But that emphatic tradition speaks here…

On this last point…

Eight

The satyr chorus is, first and foremost…

This conception of ours…

Nine

There was a very ancient folk belief…

The Prometheus saga is a primordial possession…

Ten

It has been pointed out earlier…

Eleven

The new comedy could now direct its attention…

By contrast, it is, in fact, well known everywhere…

Twelve

Now, how is Euripides' work related to this ideal of Apollonian drama?

As long as the listener still has to figure out…

Thirteen

That is the immensely disturbing thing…

Fourteen

For who can fail to recognize the optimistic element…

Fifteen

With that statement the fundamental secret of science is unmasked…

With respect to this practical pessimism…

Sixteen

Perhaps we can touch on that original problem…

Now, when in a particular case…

Seventeen

At this point we are concerned with the question…

From another perspective…

Eighteen

While the disaster slumbering in the bosom of theoretical culture…

Nineteen

For us now it is unimportant…

Now we can immediately draw attention here…

However, if in the explanation given above…

Twenty

There is no other artistic period…

Twenty One

Trusting in this noble deception…

And where we breathlessly imagined we were dying…

But nonetheless we could just as surely claim…

Twenty Two

That pathological purgation…

Twenty Three

I know that now I have to take the sympathetic friend…

Twenty Four

Here it is necessary for us to vault with a bold leap…

Twenty Five
