In this section, I will briefly mention some of the many hidden literary influences on the work. Nietzsche claims in EH that he wrote, at least the first three parts of Z in about ten intensive and inspired days each (the first and second parts were written in January–July 1883, the third part in January 1884, and the fourth and final part during January–March 1885, and published in May and September 1883, April 1884, and April 1885 respectively).

Or better, Nietzsche’s Zarathustra is the sublimated Nietzsche! The answer may at first appear almost trivial and platitudinous. Of course, Nietzsche is behind Zarathustra. Just like Goethe is behind Faust, Thomas Mann behind Adrian Leverkühn, and Robert Musil behind Ulrich. However, I want to show that Nietzsche’s Z is autobiographical to a much greater extent than these other works and than has been realized, and that this has consequences. Furthermore, where most novelists and poets base their figures on some kind of model, or on phantasy, Nietzsche consciously constructed Zarathustra out of himself, out of his experiences, and his thinking.
