Title: Kierkegaard and the Treachery of Love. Cambridge Studies in Religion and Critical Thought 9.
Description: Cambridge University Press, (Cambridge, 2002).. 222 pp, 8vo (8 15/16" H), soft cover. "This is a major study of Kierkegaard and love. Amy Laura Hall 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. Hall argues that a spiritual void brings each text into being, and her interpretation is as much about faith as about love. In a style that is both scholarly and lyrical, she intimates answers to some of the puzzles, making a poetic contribution to ethics and the philosophy of religion." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - very minor edge wear, very light rubbing, flat uncreased spine. VG+.
