NOTE ON THE TEXT AND TRANSLATION The text on which this translation is based is the standard German edition, Ecce homo. Wie man wird, was man ist, prepared by Giorgio Colli and Mazzino Montinari (KSA 6: 255–374). Where possible I have retained Nietzsche’s idiosyncratic punctuation, which the Colli–Montinari edition restores after previous editors discreetly standardized it. Instances of Nietzsche’s double emphasis have been rendered in bold type. I am grateful to my colleague Fritz Gregor Herrmann, with whom I discussed parts of the ﬁnal draft of the translation, and to Graham Parkes for permission to reprint substantial excerpts from his Oxford World’s Classics translation of Thus Spoke Zarathustra.
