LibriVox recording of The Antichrist by Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche, translated by HL Mencken, in the public domain. The LibriVox catalog page for this work lists the LibriVox readers. Save for his raucous, rhapsodical autobiography, “Ecce Homo,” “The Antichrist” is the last thing that Nietzsche ever wrote, and so it may be accepted as a statement of some of his most salient ideas in their final form. Of all Nietzsche’s books, “The Antichrist” comes nearest to conventionality in...
