Example text

24 It is as if he buried himself in order to be reborn, in order not to die: how can you be dead if you are in a position to attend your own funeral? Nietzsche was both god and victim, king and human reject. He expressed thanks majestically for a splendid welcome, and at the same time was subjected to continual conspiracies; he was duke, emperor, tyrant of Turin, and at the same time a punctilious courtier and a child seeking its mother’s protection. Only sacrifice can offer a thorough explanation for the co-presence of these opposite characteristics in Nietzsche’s ‘divinization,’ and reconstruct their precise sequence that, in his madness, he went on repeating mechanically, in senseless rotation.

The weather wears a terrible aspect; the air is cold, smoky, oppressive, an invitation to suicide rather than to a dance [. ]. The premiss is not as exciting as the Dionysiac ideal would like to imagine, and provides a telling clue of the existential angst and the alternating states of mind common to Nietzsche and his admirers. 9 What does “failing to understand” mean in a case like this? Gast appears to be in no hurry to enjoy his master’s “contagious health” by going to Turin, where Nietzsche had more than once begged him to join him.

5 Besides feeling abandoned, nothing is more likely than that he felt himself to be mysteriously to blame for it as well. Immediately after the account of his father’s death he describes a nightmare that he had at that time: a ghost comes out of his father’s tomb, takes up a small indistinct figure in its arms and draws it back into the tomb; Nietzsche interpreted this as a premonition of the death of his younger brother who died suddenly from convulsions the next day. 6 The child Friedrich was ‘found guilty’ by his father; this enigmatic sentence without appeal must have created a profound, deflected rancor in Nietzsche which can be detected, as well as his struggle against the sense of guilt, in his writings, in the unrealistic idealization of his parent and in his polemical attitude to so many things connected with the milieu of his father and family, his attitude to religion for a start.
