Description


This study examines the problematic practice of authorship in the works of Danish philosopher and theologian S oslash;ren Kierkegaard, whose infamous and invasive literary and stylistic idiosyncrasies must enter into any interpretation - philosophical, theological, or literary. The work offers a radically anti-biographical reading of Kierkegaard's literary and dramatic criticism, suggesting ultimately that the closest one ever comes to the "real" author of a written work is in an understanding of how all authors are themselves works of creative fiction.
