    More Stylistic flourishes I'm enamored with:

    On Redemption: the construction (to me) is in the Style of the Synoptic Gospels. Compare the statement by the dwarf "But why does Zarathustra speak otherwise to us than to his disciples" with the statement by Christ "To you I show the way to the Kingdom of God, to the rest I speak in parables." The other chapters closing Bk II are a series of dreams and parables.

    Also the line "And this too, is justice, this law of time that it must devour its children." Kronos (=time) devoured all his children - except 1 - Zeus - the bringer of the New Law.

    Zarathustra the godless. Anyone can be godless, but to be godless with Reverence - that's hard.

    by "half of part 3," do you mean sections 1-8 ("the wanderer" through "on apostates")?

      I didnt calculate anything. We just want to finish the rest of the book in two meetings. So that sounds good - whatever looks equal.
