This is the first complete English translation of Nietzsche's poetry. "The Peacock and the Buffalo" presents the first complete English translation of the poetry of the celebrated and hugely influential German thinker, Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900). From his first poems, written at the age of fourteen, to his last extant writings, this definitive bi-lingual edition includes all his 275 poems and aphorisms. Nietzsche's interest in poetry is no secret, as evidenced in his literary and philosophical masterpiece, "Thus Spoke Zarathustra", not to mention the poetry included in his published philosophical works. This important collection shows that Nietzsche's commitment to poetry was in fact longstanding and integral to his articulation of the truth and lies of human existence. "The Peacock and the Buffalo" is a must-read for anyone with an interest in German literature or European philosophy.
