The Antichrist

$7.95

Friedrich Nietzsche

The Antichrist, writes H.L. Mencken in the introduction, "is strident, it is often extravagant, it is, to many sensitive men, in the worst possible taste, but at bottom it is enor­mously apt and effective -- and on the surface it is undoubt­edly a good show."

In this brilliant, perceptive and scathing polemic -- which should perhaps more accurately be translated as "The Anti- Christian" -- Friedrich Nietzsche is at the height of his pow­ers. The radical German philosopher (and son of a Lutheran pastor), furiously blasts Christianity as a corrupt and de­praved religion of pity and equality, while also harshly as­sailing Jews and their role in history.

Henry L. Mencken, one of the 20th century's most influential writers, provides a forceful, fluid translation of this pow­erful work. In a fervent and informed introduction, the great American satirist puts Nietzsche's work in historical and lit­erary context, and offers unflattering observations of his own about Christians and Jews.
