Hard to understand

I’m probably not the target audience but this book is very hard to understand. The interpretation at the end of the book really helps though.

Ambitious but vague for modern readers

Heard it suit someone in agony or lost. The wording and format keeps reminding me of the Bible, due to its rhetorical beauty and the focus on humanity (comparing to other philosophical work that focus on deductions and reasoning); while the content shifts from praising the god to men, Zarathustra is suspiciously comparable to Jesus Christ in a lot of places. For example, the writer attempted in liberating humans’ thought/capabilities by constantly projecting the “virtue” on one single person, and setting him object to, in the book, the mass majority (or people not enlightened). Even though I loathe praising a martyr in literature (moral coercion is never a good way to persuade me personally), the book worth a read for it’s metaphor and story, because those a a lot easier to be absorbed in a relaxed set ups.
