English to Latvian: Everything is F*ked. A Book About Hope. Manson, Mark
General field: Art/Literary
Source text - English
As the years wore on, Meta discovered that behind Nietzsche’s penetrating eyes and gigantic mustache was a bundle of contradictions. He
wrote obsessively of power while being himself frail and weak. He preached radical responsibility and self-reliance despite being wholly dependent on (mostly female) friends and family to take care of and support him. He cursed the fickle reviewers and academics who panned his work or refused to read it, while simultaneously boasting that his lack of popular success only proved his brilliance—as he once proclaimed, “My time has not come yet, some men are born posthumously.” Nietzsche was, in fact, everything he claimed to loathe: weak, dependent, and wholly captivated and reliant on powerful, independent women. Yet, in his work, he preached individual strength and self-reliance, and was a woeful misogynist. His lifelong dependence on the care of women seemed to blur his ability to see them clearly. It would be the glaring blind spot in the vision of an otherwise prophetic man.
Translation - Latvian
Gadu gaitā Meta atklāja, ka aiz Nīčes caururbjošā acu skatiena un milzīgajām ūsām slēpās pretrunu kamols. Viņš nepārtraukti rakstīja par varu, pats būdams trausls un vājš. Nīče sludināja radikālu atbildības uzņemšanos un paļāvību uz sevi, būdams pilnībā atkarīgs no (lielākoties sieviešu dzimuma) draugiem un ģimenes, kura rūpētos un atbalstītu mācīto vīru. Viņš dusmojās uz konservatīvajiem kritiķiem un akadēmiķiem, kuri nosodīja viņa darbu un atteicās to lasīt, vienlaikus lieloties, ka plašu panākumu trūkums tikai pierāda viņa apdāvinātību – kā filozofs reiz apgalvoja: “Mans laiks vēl nav pienācis, daži cilvēki pa īstam piedzimst pēc nāves.”
Nīče faktiski iemiesoja visu, ko teicās nīstam: vājš, atkarīgs, pilnībā pārņemts ar un paļāvīgs uz stiprām, neatkarīgām sievietēm. Tomēr savos darbos autors sludināja indivīda spēku un paļāvību uz sevi, un atklāja mizogīnista uzskatus. Nīčes atkarība no sievietēm visa mūža garumā aizmigloja viņa spēju tās saskatīt skaidri. Tas kļuva par uzkrītošu vājo punktu citādi pravietiska vīra skatījumā.
