Thus Spake Zarathustra is sometimes called a philosophical novel; however, it is hard to define categorically. It is undoubtedly one of the most interesting philosophical texts ever written; it is rich in allegory, imagery, symbolism, and many other literary elements. It is rife with ambiguity; it is perplexing, oracular, and equivocal; hence, a wonderful work to explore – especially in a classroom.
