This chapter reads an elaborate metaphor (for the relation between the Dionysian and the Apollinian) in Nietzsche's Birth of Tragedy to demonstrate that the Dionysian and the Apollinian can be ‘mediated’ only by means of an impossible metaphor of metaphor — a stutter or a syncope rather than any kind of bridge.

Keywords:   Nietzsche, Dionysian, Apollinian, metaphor
