  The Birth of Tragedy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Birth of Tragedy (Die Geburt der Tragödie aus dem Geiste der Musik, 1872) is a 19th Century work of philosophy by Friedrich Nietzsche.
Nietzsche argues that the tragedy of Ancient Greece was the highest form of art due to its mixture of both Apollonian and Dionysian elements into one seamless whole, allowing the spectator to experience the full spectrum of the human condition.

 The Birth of Tragedy by Friedrich Nietzsche 1871   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-04)
We suspect that the birth of tragedy cannot be explained either from the high estimation of the moral intelligence of the masses or from the idea of the spectator without a play.
With this, the ethical basis of pessimistic tragedy is established together with the justification of human evil, that is, human guilt as the penalty for that sin.
Greek tragedy died in a manner different from all its ancient sister arts: it died by suicide, as a result of an insoluble (hence tragic) conflict; whereas, all the others passed away in advanced old age with the most beautiful and tranquil deaths.

 Essays in Philosophy
The Birth of Tragedy, by Friedrich Nietzsche, translated by Clifton P. Fadiman.
This was ostensibly a book about the origins of Greek tragedy as an art form, but Nietzsche’s passion for the genuine source of all phenomena immediately led him beyond a narrow, conservative approach to his material and instead into a quasi-metaphysical plunge into the subterranean forces that mold all art and creativity.
In these ways BT may appropriately be read as one of the harbingers of the irrationalism that characterizes the perspective of such twentieth-century icons as Freud, as well as the savagery of the World Wars that destroyed the idolatry of reason by the middle of the century.

The Birth of Tragedy (1872) is a book about the origins of Greek tragedy and its relevance to the German culture of its time.
For Nietzsche, Greek tragedy is the expression of a culture which has achieved a powerful balance between insight into the chaos and suffering which underlies all existence and the discipline and clarity of rational Apollonian form.
The Birth of Tragedy is Nietzsche's first work, and in his 'Attempt at Self-criticism' he was subsequently to reject its naïve tone, raw style and bald assertions of a Germanic cultural rebirth under the aegis of Wagner, whose influence Nietzsche had by that time repudiated.

The Dionysian element of chaos, of drunkenness and dissolution, of irrational art in it's raw existence is imaged by Apollo and necessary in conceptualization of the fleeting moment of depth that only resides in temporal flow of Dionysus and yet is destroyed by the scientific Socratized analysis.
"The Birth of Tragedy" (1872) was Nietzsche's first published work, and what a work it is. Taking as its point of departure the origins and eventual death of tragedy in ancient Greece, this book shouldn't be taken as a literal meditation on Greek tragedy.
But "The Birth of Tragedy" is more than far-fetched theorizing--it is also a penetrating gaze into the destructive side of pure reason and the sunny optimism of the Enlightenment, which Nietzsche posits as being embodied in ancient Greece in the form of Socrates, whose withering, anti-aesthetic thinking Nietzsche finds deadening and repugnant.

 Birth of Tragedy
Considering all this, The Birth of Tragedy is a confusion of professional philology, philosophical insight, and admiration of musical art.
Authentic tragedy --- that is, tragedy prior to these last corruptions --- centered upon the chorus, who remained symbolic of satyrs at least.
In concluding this discussion of tragedy as it was, we should note the metaphysical complexity of the artistic task, as Nietzsche proposed it.

Nietzsche: Preface (1887) to The Birth of Tragedy
Tragedy guides us to the final goal, which is resignation." Dionysos had told me a very different story; his lesson, as I understood it, was anything but defeatist.
And all this at a time when the German mind, which, not so very long ago, had shown itself capable of European leadership, was definitely ready to relinquish any aspirations of this sort and to effect the transition to mediocrity, democracy, and "modern ideas"&emdash; in the pompous guise, to be sure, of empire building.

 The Birth of Tragedy - Friedrich Nietzsche - Penguin Classics
A compelling argument for the necessity for art in life, Nietzsche’s first book is fuelled by his enthusiasms for Greek tragedy, for the philosophy of Schopenhauer and for the music of Wagner, to whom this work was dedicated.
He believed the combination of these states produced the highest forms of music and tragic drama, which not only reveal the truth about suffering in life, but also provide a consolation for it.
Impassioned and exhilarating in its conviction, The Birth of Tragedy has become a key text in European culture and in literary criticism.

The Birth of Tragedy & The Genealogy of Morals by Friedrich Nietzsche
Kaufmann represents "The Birth of Tragedy" as a work that allowed Nietzsche to justify his appointment to a full chair of philology at the young age of 25, but also a book that would not appeal to anyone in German academic circles.
What is most valuable about "The Birth of Tragedy" is its restatement of Greek life and culture, which up to Nietzsche's time was conceived in terms of the "Winckelmann view" according to Kaufmann.

At the moment of its arrival, with no respect for the traditional boundaries of Apollonian art, Dionysian art gave birth to Greek tragedy.
Apollo protects us from the terrible realities of human existence, and Dionysian art teaches us to be commune with what Nietzsche called the “Primordial Unity”, allowing us salvation from this existence.
