In the famous introductory scene to the Zarathustra, the philosopher goes "down" (like Socrates in the Republic) to the city of Motley Cow and gave some initial speeches to the crowd who did not understand him. They were busy waiting for the performance of the rope dancer. In the rest of the scene, the rope dancer tries to cross the rope (lying between the animal and the superman), the jester jumps over him and the rope dancer fell down.
I am interested to know how the modern scholars of Nietzsche interprets this scene. I am familiar with the interpretations of Stanley Rosen and Laurence Lampert. Rosen, for example, interprets the rope dancer as the couregous spirit of the modern man, trying to transcend itself etc. Are you familiar with other interpretations? Where should I look?
NOTE TO FRITZ'S FERRET: I will be much happy and grateful if you could help in this regard.
