The Antichrist audiobook

The Antichrist audiobook
Friedrich NIETZSCHE (1844 – 1900), translated by H. L. MENCKEN (1880 – 1956)
Save for his raucous, rhapsodical autobiography, Ecce Homo, The Antichrist is the last thing that Nietzsche ever wrote, and so it may be accepted as a statement of some of his most salient ideas in their final form. Of all Nietzsche’s books, The Antichrist comes nearest to conventionality in form. It presents a connected argument with very few interludes, and has a beginning, a middle and an end. The reason to listen to this version is that H.L. Mencken, the famous journalist, turned Nietzsche’s German into such direct, plain-spoken American English that it puts the haranguing philosopher right up in your face.
