With his book The Case of Wagner (Der Fall Wagner) complete, Friedrich Nietzsche begins to write The Antichrist.

The Case of Wagner is an explanation of his reasons for his break with his long-time friend, composer Richard Wagner. According to Nietzsche, Wagner has become too deeply involved with German nationalism and anti-Semitism.

The Antichrist (Der Antichrist) is a criticism of Christianity, and in particular some of values which originated in Christianity but which have become unquestioned elements of Western culture.
