Sheet Music: Score
The intoxicated poet : for three female vocalists (or small sections) amplified + reverb / Melody Eötvös ; based on Nietzsche's fourth chapter of 'Zarathustra'.
by Melody Eötvös (2009)
The Intoxicated Poet is based on an excerpt from Nietzsche's Thus Spoke Zarathustra (Part IV) at a point in the story where Zarathustra is drunkenly raving a final warning to the 'higher-men" he has collected, disciple-like, about his prophecy for the world and the rise of the Ubermensch. The words flow both poetically and aphoristically; swirling through expressions of fear, marvel, disappointment, and love.
