Abstract

This investigation represents what one could call an exercise in postmodern reader-response criticism. In it, I address the stylistic mechanisms by which contradictions inherent in the character of Jesus within Nietzsche's text invoke in the reader a psychological state analogous to the one Nietzsche attributes to Jesus. This trajectory is examined as a possible device towards a non-reactive means of combating ressentiment. Implications of how language figures into such a systemically aconceptual endeavor are discussed.
