Como una mera introducción a la vida de Nietzsche, está muy bien. Me hubiera gustado que fuese un poco más extensa, dado que contar toda una vida utilizando el cómic como el medio para hacerlo, puede hacer incluso que la existencia de un octogenario ―sólo estoy poniendo un ejemplo― completamente detallada mes a mes de cada uno de sus años, nos parezca algo completamente accesible, aún cuando su historia requiriese 3000 páginas. Lo mismo no se podría decir de una novela cualquiera con la misma ca ...more

Une très belle BD, aux dessins émouvants et évocateurs. Mais pour apprécier cet album dans son entièreté, il faut avoir lu un peu sur la vie de Nietzsche et connaître sa philosophie, du moins dans ses grandes lignes.

This book started as film manuscript, and after reading it I'm feeling that it maybe got lost when it turned to graphic novel. My main criticism is that the storytelling lacks movement. The narrative moves forward through chain of barely related episodes, people change from situation to situation and the depicted scenes offer little to explain why they are brought up in the first place. Frames freeze the action, which there is not much of, in an predictable way. What is this for a book? Biograbh ...more

An elliptical narrative telling a bit of Nietzsche's life with some questionable small details, sure, but so what? Beautiful drawings and a quite competent summary of some of his key moments. If you want to know his work, then read his work! This is just a feast for the eyes, my friends.

Very moody biography with nice artwork. NOT a very clear intro to his life or work. I'll blame a small part of this on my French which isn't great, but I think some preliminary background is necessary for this to make sense on more than an impressionistic level.

Friedrich Nietzsche gehört zu Deutschlands bekanntesten Dichtern und Philosophen. Er führte ein eher kurzes, aber bewegtes Leben, welches am Ende von schwerer Krankheit gezeichnet war. Mit Nietzsches Ausspruch „Gott ist tot“ durfte ich mich schon zu meiner Schulzeit auseinander setzen. Doch wer war diese bedeutende Persönlichkeit wirklich? Und was waren die Kernaussagen seiner Philosophie?

All diese Fragen werden in der Graphic Novel „Nietzsche“ aufgegriffen und näher beleuchtet. Wir begleiten Ni

Je n'aurais pas lu un livre sur Friedrich Nietzsche, il est comme un mythe qui semble inabordable. La curiosité, la popularité de Michel Onfray et la couverture médiatique dont a bénéficié ce livre m’ont amené à emprunter Nietzsche: se créer liberté à la bibliothèque. Démystifier sans tomber dans la vulgarisation, rendre ces éléments (pensée et biographie) accessibles au plus grand nombre. Décidément, la bande dessinée est encore bien mal considérée eu égard à son apport.

Nunca he leído a Friedrich Nietzsche, siempre había escuchado malas cosas de el. Leí el otro día un artículo sobre su filosofía y me dio curiosidad, encontré este comic de Michel Onfray y decidí darle una oportunidad.

Según el acelerado relato de su vida encontrado en estas páginas creo que el trabajo de Nietzsche es demasiado denso para que yo entre así sin más, es necesario aproximarse utilizando otras obras como esta.

Pienso que me gustará seguir leyendo sobre este señor.

Bon, j'ai emprunter cette bd à la bibliothèque après avoir beaucoup apprécié celle qui traite sur Henry David Thoreau du même auteur. Le problème ici est que je n'avais aucune notion de base sur la vie ou l'oeuvre de Nietzsche et donc. Ett bd m'a ététrés difficile à suivre, mais je crois que c'était en partie voulu pour démontrer la fragilité psychologique du personnage et sa descente vers la folie. Certains passages étaient aussi difficiles à lire à cause de la police choisie.

Amazing artwork. Definitely five stars for that. The storytelling and discussion of Nietzsche's ideas are lacking, but let's be honest... What can we expect from a biographical graphic novel? It wouldn't be fair to criticize artwork in failing to fully cover a philosopher's ideas. For that we should read his philosophical work. What the book has given me is a great experience, a greater interest in Nietzsche as a person his life, and his work, and an even greater appreciation of the beautiful ar ...more

Na de les van Olmer heb ik deze strip voor de tweede keer gelezen en er meer van begrepen. Het gaat meer over zijn leven dan over zijn werk. Ik heb gezocht naar een dergelijke strip over de inhoud van zijn filosofie maar het niet gevonden.

I would try to write this review in french if my french wasn't so completely abominable.
The book is very beautiful and some pictures are truly works of art; it has nice quotables and it is a different and cool way to get to know more about one of our best-known philosophers, philologists and artists (in music and writing).
Nietzsche was nuts, miserable and brilliant and sometimes I just really wanted to enter the book and give him a hug. Why oh why do I love this type of people so much.

Mooi beeldverhaal van het leven van deze opmerkelijke filosoof.
Toch ook heel wat bijgeleerd ondanks het feit dat het semi-experimenteel beeldverhaal duidelijk doorwoog op het tekstuele gedeelte.

2 étoiles pour la couleur et la manque de clarté dans l'histoire. 3 étoiles pour le dessin et la tendresse avec lequel les auteurs ont traité quelqu'un qui n'est pas normalement considéré avec tendresse. ça m'a donné envie de découvrir un peu plus sur l'homme - que je n'ai jamais boum faire auparavant.

Çizgi-Otobiyografi tadında Nietzsce'yi anlama rehberi olmuş kitap. İçinde barınan metaforlar oldukça güzel çizilmiş ve anlatılmış. Ayrıca hayatının delilikle geçirdiği son on yılına kadar anlaşılmamış, hor görülmüş ve sıkıntılar çekmiş bir dehanın çocukluktan itibaren keskin dönüşlerini ve farklı düşüncelerini böylesine göze hoş gelen çizimlerle incelemek çok ayrı bir tat. Çok başarılı olmuş, EsenKitap'ın eline sağlık.

This is a beautiful book. I particularly like the usage and choices of limited color palettes to separate the different scenes (as there no divisions by chapters). But the text was way above my reading level. I read a Dutch translation and had to sit with my mini-woordenboek in my hand and dissect almost every word bubble. Heady, heavy stuff. I'm going to duck back into some light (and joyful) reading again for a while. :-)

tolle bearbeitung der biographie von friedrich nietzsche. wagner, die böse schwester und der langsame wahnsinn durch die syphilis kommen ebenso wenig zu kurz wie geschickt montierte dialoge über zentrale philosophische inhalte. vor allem die "wahnsinn" passagen haben mir sehr gut gefallen. nicht direkt eine einführung aber doch eine gute ergänzung zum lesen der primärliteratur.
Fredrik Strömberg
Beautiful, evocative drawings and a comics biography that shuns the easy show and tell mode that I have read too many of.

The story gives glimpses into Nietzche's life, but does not try to recount everything. I especially liked the free way in which Le Roy interpreted Nietzche's anxiety attacks.

An inspired visual biography.
Elin
The story is very basic, I know a little bit more about Nietzsche now than I did before, but I wish there were MORE. The artwork is good, but too much sceneries. The druged up/ insane dreams were well exicuted and I realy enjoyed the feel of them!

Michel Onfray is a French philosopher. Born to a family of Norman farmers, he graduated with a Ph.D. in philosophy. He taught this subject to senior students at a technical high school in Caen between 1983 and 2002, before establishing what he and his supporters call the Université populaire de Caen, proclaiming its foundation on a free-of-charge basis, and the manifesto written by Onfray in 2004 ...more
