A Kierkegaard Anthology by Søren Kierkegaard edited by Robert Bretell


Small hardcover with dust jacket in very good condition.  

A few small edge tears and some staining to rear to an otherwise very nice dust jacket; now housed in a new archival quality jacket protector.

Book itself is excellent.  Clean red cloth boards.  Initials of orig. owner on title page.  Reads like new!

This anthology covers the whole of Kierkegaard's literary career. The selections range from the terse epigrams of the Journal through the famous -Diary of the Seducer- and the -Banquet- scene, in which Soren Kierkegaard reveals his great lyric and dramatic gifts, on to the philosophical and psychological works of his maturity. These are climaxed by the beautiful and moving religious discourses which accompany them; finally, there is the biting satire of his Attack upon -Christendom.-

This is emphatically not a collection of -snippets, - but the cream of Kierkegaard, each selection interesting and intelligible in itself, and all ranking among his most important work. They are so arranged as to convey an idea of his remarkable intellectual development.
