View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Übermensch is derived from one of Nietzsche's most challenging and frequently misunderstood concepts, the Superman or Overman. Nietzsche's believed that we are capable of being better than we are, possessing more understanding, more compassion, greater wisdom and more awareness which allows humanism to fill the void left by the absence of God. As Virgil led Dante on his midlife journey, the Übermensch is our guide through modernity. Manolis has extended his range, celebrating the magnetic possibilities of the self in a narrative that takes us on an intellectual and spiritual journey. The poems possess a vitality of sensuous music in a sea of thought, kinetic and direct, imbued by rational compassion and mystic clarity. Übermensch is a reverie in the best traditions of poetry, a poetic sacrement from which the taste of language rises like honey oozing in the ear. With the Greek en face.
