 KSB 8: 566. From a letter dated December 30, 1888.
 KSB 8: 575. This sentence is taken from a postcard Nietzsche wrote to Heinrich Köselitz.
 The Idylls of Messina and the Dionysos Dithyrambs were the sole works of Nietzsche’s composed strictly of verse. The first, a cycle of eight poems, was featured in a magazine edited by his publisher Schmeitzner in 1882 and thereafter listed by Nietzsche himself on the back cover of his subsequent books as one of his works. The latter was his last complete work. During his final sane days, he was proofreading the book.
 Phillip Pothen expresses this same view: “Nietzsche’s suspicion concerning art is perhaps the greatest of any since Plato’s, and even, it might be said, including Plato’s.” See Pothen’s Nietzsche and the Fate of Art (London: Ashgate, 2002), 12.
