Janz, Friedrich Nietzsche. Biographie,  vols. (Hanser Verlag: Munich, –), W. Ross, Der a¨ ngstliche Adler xxxii Further reading (Deutsche Verlags-Anstalt: Stuttgart, ), and R. Safranski, Nietzsche. Biographie seines Denkens (Hanser Verlag: Munich, ). All of these works discuss aspects of BGE as well.
