Thus Spake Zarathustra by Friedrich Nietzsche
The book chronicles the fictitious travels and speeches of Zarathustra. Zarathustra’s namesake was the founder of Zoroastrianism, usually known in English as Zoroaster. Nietzsche is clearly portraying a new or different Zarathustra, one who turns traditional morality on its head.
