Zarathustra's tragedy lies in the difficulty of transmitting knowledge. With each attempt, his efforts are in vain. At first he is ignored by the crowd, then rejected, then attacked and finally idolised, even deified. Throughout the book, he is constantly down, tries, fails and then returns to his solitude at the top of the mountain.
This Nietzschean dramatisation is actually a critique of pure rationality, of knowledge as abstraction.
