The Birth of Tragedy or Hellenism and Pessimism by Friedrich Nietzsche (1844 - 1900). Translated by William Haussmann (1870 - )

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-birth-of-tragedy-or-hellenism-and-pessimism-version-2-by-friedrich-nietzsche/

This is one of Nietzsche's early academic writings - a scholarly theory about Ancient Greek theatre, specifically tragedies. In a nutshell, this work theorizes about why (Greek) spectators enjoy watching actors in a long series of scenes that depict human suffering (i.e., tragedy). It is a curious question, especially at the time since scholars generally thought of the Greeks as "A race of men, well-fashioned, beautiful, envied, life-inspiring, like no other race hitherto" (per Nietzsche's introduction). What did they need tragedy for? The question itself, and the path Nietzsche takes to answer this question, outraged the academic world. Later, an older Nietzsche criticizes this book himself and warns the reader that this text "should be treated with some consideration and reserve; yet I shall not altogether conceal how disagreeable it now appears to me, how after sixteen years it stands a total stranger before me."  (jvanstan)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/51356/
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

This is set up.

You're not afraid of multiple versions, so I won't mention that this will be version 2. :wink:

Go for it.

When a project doesn't have a DPL, you can just go ahead and listen; you usually don't have to claim sections to PL. (Unless a project has a lot of people clamoring to PL; then I suppose it's needed so people don't listen one on top of the other.) ;)
