Exercice de style #4: Nietzsche

Tuesday, October 18th, 2011

An extract from ‘Der tolle Mensch’, tale appea­ring in Nietzsche’s book Die fröh­lische Wis­sen­chaft (The Gay Science), it is in this tale that a ‘foo­lish man’ announces to a non-believing audience that God is dead, killed by man. Here’s a quick trans­la­tion of this quote:

« Light­ning and thun­der need time,
The light of stars needs time,
deeds need time,
even after they’re done,
to be seen and heard. »

[The Num­ber Of The Beast – Iron Maiden]


“… Let him who hath unders­tan­ding, reckon the num­ber of the beast,
for it is a human number…”
