A fascinating and brilliant scrutiny of the underlying dynamics of Greek tragedy which in the mind of Nietzsche represent the two primordial forces that compete for dominance of the human psyche: The Apollonian and the Dionysian. Even if you don't buy into it all, it's great as a philosophical treatise.
