Overall, I was surprisingly bored by this reading - might be because I've had a very long day or because I didn't give it due time. It seemed just like a combination of Stirner and Nietzsche done weaker than either would have done it, trying to be poetic like Nietzsche in Thus Spoke Zarathustra.

Having been written over a century ago it's still quite remarkable, but I don't feel like we're missing out today if we focus on contemporary nihilist and egoist stuff.

I'd rather make my way through baedan, or Wolfi.

That said, Novatore was pretty badass and I aspire to badassery :)

I agree, I enjoyed the poetry of the text and certain elements had me questioning myself which is great to have happen. I would like more modern texts however this text did hold up rather well regardless
