Treatise in four parts, it is the first thorough statement of Nietzsche's philosophy and the masterpiece of his career. Its influence since his death has been considerable, in the arts as well as philosophy. Written in the form of a prose narrative, the book offers the philosophy of its author through the voice of Zarathustra who has come down from a mountain to offer his wisdom to the world. In this work Nietzsche made his famous statement that 'God is dead' and presented some of the most influential and well-known ideas of his philosophy, including those of the Uebermensch and the 'will to power'.
