Nietzsche's philosophy - at once revolutionary, erudite and deep - reaches into all spheres of the arts. Well into a second century of influence, the profundity of his ideas and the complexity of his writings still determine Nietzsche's power to engage his readers. His first book, "The Birth of Tragedy", presents us with a lively inquiry into the existential meaning of Greek tragedy. We are confronted with the idea that the awful truth of our existence can be revealed through tragic art, whereby our relationship to the world transfigures from pessimistic despair into sublime elation and affirmation. It is a landmark text in his oeuvre and remains an important book both for newcomers to Nietzsche and those wishing to enrich their appreciation of his mature writings. "Nietzsche and The Birth of Tragedy" provides a clear account of the text and explores the philosophical, literary and historical influences bearing upon it. Each chapter examines part of the text, explaining the ideas presented and assessing relevant scholarly points of interpretation. The book will be an invaluable guide to readers in Philosophy, Literary Studies and Classics coming to "The Birth of Tragedy" for the first time.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This is a thoughtful and instructive work, and a fine contribution to the literature. Daniels casts considerable light on what is perhaps Nietzsche's most difficult work." Daniel Came, University of Oxford "Daniels provides an accessible and reliable commentary that gets the general trajectory of BT right and raises a number of important questions regarding the relationship of the text to Nietzsche's later philosophy. It is for these reasons that 'Nietzsche and The Birth of Tragedy' complements and improves upon the existing literature on Nietzsche's first work and thus can be recommended to readers of Nietzsche encountering BT for the first time." - Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews "Clear, engaging, and very well written - its ideas and arguments are directed at the non-specialist, although there is much here for Nietzsche scholars to enjoy." - Bryn Mawr Classical Review
