The Birth of Tragedy

568047The Birth of Tragedy: Some great insights amid complex writing and thoughts. Prepare to spend quite some time on it, I guess it is a must read if you are really interested in ancient greek tragedy.

The Case of Wagner? Delightful! Especially for people who try, but can’t get to like Wagner (me!)
