The works of Friedrich Nietzsche have fascinated readers around the world ever since the publication of his first book more than a hundred years ago. As Walter Kaufmann, one of the world&;s leading authorities on Nietzsche, notes in his introduction, &;Few writers in any age were so full of ideas,&; and few writers have been so consistently misinterpreted. The Portable Nietzsche includes Kaufmann&;s definitive translations of the complete and unabridged texts of Nietzsche&;s four major works: Twilight of the Idols, The Antichrist, Nietzsche Contra Wagner and Thus Spoke Zarathustra. In addition, Kaufmann brings together selections from his other books, notes, and letters, to give a full picture of Nietzsche&;s development, versatility, and inexhaustibility. &;In this volume, one may very conveniently have a rich review of one of the most sensitive, passionate, and misunderstood writers in Western, or any, literature.&; &;Newsweek
