This chapter examines the role of Nietzsche's Birth of Tragedy in Benjamin's Origin of German Trauerspiel. Benjamin articulates his theory of tragedy by contesting Nietzsche's account, but as his treatise develops, this overcoming of Nietzsche's work proves to be congruent with Nietzsche's own further development.
