Nietzche wrote on Tragedy?

I recently found out that Nietzsche wrote a book dealing with Tragedy.  So I started reading generally about the guy, having only gained a passing glance at his life in Alain de Botton’s “The Philosophy of Happiness.”

“God is Dead,” and then we’ll become Ubermensch?  Totally feminist, practically, and yet, at the same time, Mysogynist?  He’s seriously got the worst case of “nice guy syndrome” I think I’ve ever seen.

I think… I think I may have found my man.  I mean, I’ll be looking to other men, too… Aristotle is a good start.  And I kinda like some of those Structuralist guys.

But he’s my muse.  I think I want to base my tragic hero on him.  Poor Walrus man.
