Huneker insisted that art has nothing to do with any ism. « Nietzsche himself is proof of it, » he argued; « he is an aristocrat, his ideal is that of the superman because he has no sympathy with or faith in the common herd. » I pointed out that Nietzsche was not a social theorist but a poet, a rebel and innovator. His aristocracy was neither of birth nor of purse; it was of the spirit. In that respect Nietzsche was an anarchist, and all true anarchists were aristocrats, I said.
