Composed in four parts between 1883 and 1885, Thus Spoke Zarathustra is the most famous and influential work of German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche. The work is a philosophical novel in which the character of Zarathustra, a religious prophet–like figure, delivers a series of lessons and sermons in a Biblical style that articulate the central ideas of Nietzsche's mature thought. Key to the philosophy of Thus Spoke Zarathustra is a rejection of traditional systems of religious morality, the idea of the will to power, and a vision of a new, higher mode of being, the "übermensch" or "Superman," one of Nietzsche's most famous and controversial figures. As innovative stylistically as it is philosophically, Thus Spoke Zarathustra is both a literary masterpiece and an enduring classic of moral thought.

This version of Thus Spoke Zarathustra is the translation by Thomas Common.

Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900) was a German philosopher and philologist whose best-known works include Thus Spoke Zarathustra; Ecce Homo; Human, All Too Human; and Beyond Good and Evil. Much of his work is characterized by radical questioning of the value and objectivity of truth and criticism of traditional ideals of morality. Nietzsche's writings were significant influences on the existentialist, nihilist, and postmodernist schools of thought, as well as on the work of such later writers as Herman Hesse, Albert Camus, Sigmund Freud, and Jean-Paul Sartre.

British narrator John Lee has read audiobooks in almost every conceivable genre, from Charles Dickens to Patrick O'Brian, and from the very real life of Napoleon to the entirely imagined lives of sorcerers and swashbucklers. He has won numerous Audie Awards and AudioFile Earphones Awards, and he was named a Golden Voice by AudioFile in 2009. Lee is also an accomplished stage actor and wrote and coproduced the feature films Breathing Hard and Forfeit.
