Example text

A great many of the myths that have built up around Nietzsche’s fate can be exploded once and for all by close analysis of some of the documents concerning his madness, brought together and examined commendably by Verrecchia. It may not make very happy reading but, by way of recompense, it is highly instructive. 6 But what underlay the relationship of these friends to the philosopher, who was on the point of being consigned, literally in a straitjacket, to his already posthumous fame, was a conniving and hypocritical refusal of reality, well exemplified in Peter Gast, an ill-treated but faithful follower whose mediocre compositions Nietzsche had grotesquely attempted to compare to the music of Wagner.

Not realizing the consequences of what he was doing, he only saw his generous friendship repaid with growing hysteria, to his lasting disgust. Everything happened as if they were under a spell, whose causes were beyond the grasp of those directly involved, though with different degrees of responsibility. 44 The imitator is invited to follow and admire the model (the public adoration of Wagner) but as soon as he approaches too closely to the model, he is driven away (Nietzsche was laughed to scorn for his music, as would also have been the case if he had declared his love for Cosima).
