Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900) was a German philosopher and classical philologist. He is one of the most important and influential figures in the history of European thought. James Luchte is Lecturer of Philosophy and Programme Co-ordinator of the MA in European Philosophy at the University of Wales, Trinity St. David, in Wales.

There was phallic metaphor everywhere, even in poem titles and the book title. Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche was a German philosopher of the late 19th century who challenged the foundations of Christianity and traditional morality.

Siapa tak kenal manusia satu ini. Dialah si pembunuh Tuhan. There was phallic metaphor everywhere, even in poem titles and the book title. But the homoerotic fantasies stayed only at the surface. Perhaps these leaked out unintentionally, as they were certainly never explored. He was interested in the enhancement of individual and cultural health, and believed in life, creativity, power, and the realities of the world we live in, rather than those situated in a world beyond.

The clearest statement I can make about the impact of reading this collection involves both poetry and philosophy: Nietzsche's philosophical writing is often poetic and his poetry is thoroughly philosophical. There is always a risk in writing poetry informed by ideas, that is, it may never take flight but remain stubbornly earth-bound. When Manet told his friend Mallarme he wanted to write poems because he had great ideas, Mallarme replied, "My dear Manet, you don't write poems with ideas, you write them with words." Exactly! Of course, it helps if the words chosen create images, figures of speech, similes/metaphors, etc. - the tools of poetry. Ideas are derived from poetry, but they do not create them. Many of the 275 (!) poems in this volume show that Nietzsche understood this principle of poetic composition. This is part of the closing stanza in which he personifies melancholy as a vindictive goddess: "Mock me not, evil Goddess, that/I braid you with delicate rhymes,/Shudder when you are near me,/Shiver when you try to reach me,/And I stammer on, song after song . . . " This a fine, formal 19th century voice; the poem flows persuasively over five stanzas, culminating in this passionate cry: "Goddess, let me go!" at the end of the sixth stanza. Nietzsche purged the Germanic heaviness from his prose style, which makes earlier philosophy by German writers so difficult and ponderous. He adopted a conversational tone, an aphoristic style, a generally non-technical vocabulary. In this way, he revolutionized philosophy. These strengths in his prose writing were also strengths in his poetic composition. In my assessment after reading this collection, I believe Nietzsche was a greater philosopher than poet: his ambition was stunning - to say "No" to every belief, idea, principle until he could verify it, and to say "Yes" to a new philosophy. In poetry, his goals are clearly not that of a reformer; rather he often composed his poems to explore quotidian issues. His concern for the proper stanza form, rhyme scheme, word choice, etc. is the mark of a true poet; Mallarme would have praised his commitment. This volume concludes with "Dionysos Dithyrambs", probably Nietzsche's most inspired and dangerous poems, composed just before his complete mental collapse. These are searing poems, cries from the heart, pleas of the soul. These poems alone make this volume essential for serious reader of Nietzsche. However, the earlier poems, although not as intense, are finely crafted insights into what makes us human and perhaps more than than human. Here is a clever poem on his "Overman" concept called "Higher Men": "He climbs up - you must praise him!/But this one comes from above!/He is relieved of praise,/He is from above!"

The translation is horrible. The translator claims to have rendered a literal translation rather than a poetic one. That is certainly defensible, but the "literalness" seems to have been taken from a machine translation. For example, "Meine Seele, ein Saitenspiel" is translated as "My soul, a stringed game," which is how Google translates it. All other Nietzsche translators understand it as "My soul, a stringed instrument". [From Ecce Homo, "Why I Am So Clever," section 7]

Primarily known as a philosopher more than a poet, Nietzsche penned wonderful works like Also Spake Zarathustra and Beyond Good and Evil. The Peacock and the Buffalo is a collection of Nietzsche's poetry leading off with his poem The Peacock and the Buffalo. As well, this work is set out in a chronological manner. It is interesting to read changes in his outlook and prose as he progressed through his life. If you enjoy Nietzsche and his other works, this is a must add for your library.

This review is exclusively about the Kindle edition of this book which, on its own merits, is a terrific resource for anyone who studies Nietzsche. It is bilingual, and that is the nub of the problem. Kindle formatting simply does not deal well with bilingual texts, with the two languages on facing pages. Unless you really play around with the scaling, it is very common to not be able to see to which German, an English translation corresponds. The English is sometimes on the left side of the page, and sometimes on the right. I would still encourage you to get the book in Kindle if you really STUDY Nietzsche. For example, in several poems, there is the phrase 'unknown god'. It is revealing to see in what contexts he mentions this. (Nietzsche makes a pointed reference to 'an unknown god' in Para 55 of "The Gay Science", which is what set me on the track of this book, since Walter Kaufman's book with the poem is pricy and hard to find.

If you are not a big Kindle user, the Kindle edition is just pricy enough that you would probably be better off gettin a paper copy. For Kindle users, one of these days, I hope Amazon improves their display of texts intended to face one another on side by side pages.
