Thus Spoke Zarathustra, the most famous and influential work of Friedrich Nietzsche, is a philosophical novel that articulates the themes central to Nietzsche's mature thought--a rejection of religious morality, the will to power, and the idea of the "overman"--through the religious prophet-like character of Zarathustra.

Evidently translated by Thomas Conlin, or someone named like that (I take this from the tape; it's not indicated in the "full record" entry). This version unaccountably is prefaced by an introduction credited to Nietzsche's sister, who survived him, and was a revisionist, National Socialist sympathizer who emphasized the "Nazi" elements of his work. She was the widow of a Nazi sympathizer who attempted to establish a "colony" in Paraguay. She was alleged to have 'marketed' her brother's work after his death, giving it her own spin with German nationalist and cultural leanings, and even editing it selectively--helping to connect Nietzsche much more strongly with Nazism than is justified. That being the case, and there being no additional background on the translator, I'm inclined to distrust this version. The recording isn"t helped (to my ear) by the narrator, who sounds vaguely like Sean Connery in a preachy mood; his delivery is a staccato, hammering one that I tired of very quickly.
