Adulterated

"I have reread Nietzsche, lately, during military maneuvers in Silesia. He had great gifts as novelist, but his Overman is still-born. The name alone make me think of all this modern advertisement, to all those products that cannot hold the name of a substance, because they are adulterated."
Valery Larbaud, AO Barnabooth: His Diary, 1913
