Item description for Kierkegaard and the Treachery of Love (Cambridge Studies in Religion and Critical Thought) by Amy Laura Hall, Wayne Proudfoot & Jeffrey L. Stout...
This study explores Kierkegaard's description of love's treachery, difficulty, and hope, reading his Works of Love as a text that both deciphers and complicates the central books in his pseudonymous canon: Fear and Trembling, Repetition, Either/Or, and Stages on Life's Way. In all of these works, the characters are, as in real life, complex and incomplete, and the conclusions are perplexing. Amy Laura Hall argues that a spiritual void brings each text into being, and her interpretation is as much about faith as about love. She intimates answers to some of the puzzles, making a poetic contribution to ethics and the philosophy of religion.
