Example text

Solitude, one might suggest, is the fate of the writer. Yet in the above self-assessment there is surely a degree of adolescent self-dramatisation. For, as we have seen, there was a great deal of normal boyish sociability, even boisterousness, in Fritz’s early life. One should not, moreover, be tempted to discover any hint of misanthropy in his delight in entering the ‘free temple of nature’.

Ludwig, as Nietzsche’s father was known, had been born in , the son of Friedrich August (–), a ‘superintendent’ (roughly, archdeacon) in the Lutheran church and a writer of treatises on moral and theological subjects.

All joy vanished from our hearts and profound sadness overtook us. Yet when our wounds had only just begun to heal a new event painfully tore them open.
