THE NIETZSCHE CIRCLE would like to invite you to its inaugural event,
Transfigurations: An Evening of Nietzsche’s Poetry & Music
Transfigurations will feature recitations from *The Peacock & the Buffalo* by Jennifer Gosetti-Ferencei (recipient of the Paris Review Prize for poetry and author of *After the Palace Burns*
and *Heidegger, Holderlin, and the Subject of Poetic Language*) David Kilpatrick (writer for the Brooklyn Rail), and Dr. Friedrich Ulfers(Associate Professor of
Germanic Languages and Literatures at NYU), as well as a talk on Nietzsche and poetry by Yunus Tuncel and musical interludes performed by
Thomas Coote (featured on Nietzsche Music Project recordings). A festive reception will follow with food and spirits.
This event has been staged to celebrate the American release of James Luchte’s translation (the first complete edition of Nietzsche’s poetry in English)
of *The Peacock and the Buffalo*, and to announce the mission of the newly formed Nietzsche Circle to the public, which is dedicated to living
with the questions Nietzsche raised concerning aesthetics through developing not only new kinds of artwork, but new kinds of artists. There will be books and CDs available for purchase.
Due to very limited seating, reservations are strongly recommended. Please write to the Nietzsche Circle at email@example.com to place your reservation.
We will confirm with those we are able to accommodate with seats; above and beyond that, whatever standing room is available will be offered to those who first appear.
