Translated from the Danish by Walter Lowrie, David Swenson, and Alexander DruThe Danish philosopher Kierkegaard is one of the master thinkers of the modern age, a defining influence on existentialism and on twentieth-century theology, and this brilliantly tailored selection from his vast and varied writings–made by the great English poet W.H Auden–is a perfect introduction to his work. Auden’s inspired and incisive response to a thinker who had done much to shape his own beliefs is a fundamental reading of an author whose spirit remains as radical as ever more than 150 years after he wrote.
Soren Kierkegaard (1813-1855) was born and lived in Copenhagen. His many works of philosophy and theology, including Either/Or, Fear and Trembling, and The Sickness Unto Death, have exercised a profound influence on modern thought.
