Example text

With this weapon, the Hellenic Will battled that talent correlative to the artistic, the talent for s u f f e r i n g and for the wisdom of suffering. Out of this battle and as a monument to victory, tragedy was born. The i n t o x i c a t i o n o f s u f f e r i n g and t h e b e a u t i f u 1 d r e a m have their distinct pantheons. The first, in the omnipotence of its being, pierces the innermost thoughts of nature; it cognizes the fearsome drive toward existence and at once the continual dying of all that enters into existence.

So long as the statue floats before the artist's eyes as a fantasy image, he plays still with the actual; when he translates this image into marble, he plays with the dream. In what sense, then, was A p o 1 1 o able to be made the god of a r t ? 4 He is the "shining one" [der Scheinende] through and through, in his deepest roo ts the god of sun and light who reveals himself in radiance. "Beauty" [Schonheit] is his element, eternal youth his companion. But the beautiful seeming [schoner Schein] of the dream­ world is his domain, too; higher truth, the perfection of these conditions in contrast to day-to-day actuality's tattered intelligibility, elevates him to a prophesying5 god, but just as surely to an artificing god.

It is not unworthy of the greatest heroes to yearn to live on, even as day laborers. Never has the "Will" expressed itself more openly than in Hellenism, whose very complaint is still a hymn of praise. " In these conceptions, erring all, from the noblest to the meanest, Hellenism is taken too crudely and simply, formed more or less in the image of nations that lack ambiguity and are, so to speak, one-sided (for instance, the Romans). All the same, one must presume a need for artistic seeming [ kunstlerisch Schein] even in the vision of the world of a people that takes care to turn all it touches to gold.
