Cioran is known as much for his profound pessimism and fatalistic approach as for the lyrical, raging prose with which he communicates them. Unlike many of his other works, such as On the Heights of Despair and Tears and Saints , The New Gods eschews his usual aphoristic approach in favor of more extensive and analytic essays.

Academic journal article French Forum. Sontag's essay has become a touchstone for taking Cioran seriously as a philosopher and the correlations between Cioran and Nietzsche she described are now staples of Cioran criticism. Sontag's junction of Cioran and Nietzsche has been steadily reinforced. As a postscript to his book on Nietzsche, Clement Rosset puts Cioran in the tradition of Nietzsche's Gay Science and credits him for posing the most serious and most grave question to philosophy: whether an alliance is possible between lucidity and joy.

Two of Cioran's most esteemed translators, Ilinca Zarifopol-Johnson and Sanda Stolojan, separately asserted that Nietzsche was a major influence on Cioran in the s.

Cioran's friend, the Spanish philosopher Fernando Savater, emphasized how much the two have in common. In a close comparison of Cioran's Romanian works with Nietzsche's books and Nachlass, Lucia Gorgoi found multiple similarities in style and substance, particularly regarding aphorisms and nihilism. Patrice Bollon's summary of Cioran's philosophy links it to Nietzsche more frequently than to any other philosopher.

Despite all this, Nietzsche and Cioran are a pair that ought not be taken for granted, for three reasons: affinity and resemblance are too easily mistaken for agreement and influence; Cioran strenuously resisted falling into the orbit of other authors; and he specifically asserted his independence from Nietzsche. In his later books and interviews, Cioran often described Nietzsche as "naive," and from the s on he felt superior to the philosopher of the superman.

Cioran knew Nietzsche's work well. Although little of Nietzsche had been translated into Romanian, Cioran could read German from earliest youth and found the language no obstacle. A school notebook from Cioran's teens survives with his neatly copied passages from Nietzsche, interspersed with passages from Balzac, Diderot, Flaubert, Lichtenberg, Schopenhauer, and his greatest passion, Dostoyevsky.

Dostoyevsky stood between Cioran and Nietzsche as a buffer and bond. Despite the clash of Dostoyevsky's Christianity with his own atheism, Nietzsche himself praised Dostoyevsky as "the only psychologist from whom I had something to learn. Chestov was also author of L'Idee de bien chez Tolstoi et Nietzsche. Cioran claimed Chestov--not Nietzsche--as "my philosopher" during the interwar years. Much of what now seems to be Nietzschean in early Cioran was pre-selected by Blaga.

Read preview. Susan Sontag wrote that Cioran comes after Nietzsche, who set down almost the whole of Cioran's position a century ago. An interesting question: why does a subtle, powerful mind consent to say what has, for the most part, already been said? Whatever the answer, the "fact" of Nietzsche has undeniable consequences for Cioran. He must tighten the screws, make the argument denser. More excruciating. More rhetorical. Common types of primary sources include works of literature, historical documents, original philosophical writings, and religious texts.
