One of Nietzche's earliest works, 'The Birth of Tragedy' is a remarkable source of inspiration. It is here that the philosopher passionately expresses his faith in the human soul and explores the consolation that art can provide for life. He presents a laudatory portrayal of the German composer Richard Wagner, arguing that his music is the saviour of Europe; like the ancient Greek playwrights that came before him, Wagner harmoniously combines the beautiful and orderly Apollonian forces with the chaotic and primal Dionysian elements.
