Essays Miss the essence of Soren K. Aug 24, 2007
The essays can be helpful in understanding some of K's works, but the pervasive ignoring of the spiritual/religious aspects of K's works individually and taken all together makes the book incomplete and totally unsatisfactory. The secularists who write and edit this kind of collection of essays just can't get beyond their own prejudices. Most essays are difficult to read because of poor writing and a failure to really look and analyze what K. is saying. Also, the selection of topics are arbitrary, and I am sure most of the writers wish K. had only written Either/Or and perhaps Stages on Life's way. Please do what K. would want you to do: read his works and ignore the intellectual blather in this book which he would have despised.
