Strategies for overcoming: Nietzsche and the will to metaphor

Philosophy and Literature 28 (1):60-73 (2004)
Abstract
: Believing that philosophy had become a single-minded pursuit of a dead metaphor, Nietzsche constructs his authorial self as a "strong poet," a writer who attempts a new vocabulary and increases flexibility for available discourses. Building on observations by Gilles Deleuze, Sarah Kofman, and others, this article maps the literary register of Nietzsche's thinking, particularly in Beyond Good and Evil, to see the ways that tropes and rhetorical devices drive Nietzsche's textual negotiations. Such literary self-interrogation into how a text might enact its own will to power gives rise—for Nietzsche, the reader, and for philosophy itself—to methods of self-overcoming
