Synopsis

Kierkegaard's Writings, X, Volume 10: Three Discourses on Imagined Occasions by Soren Kierkegaard

Three Discourses on Imagined Occasions was the last of seven works signed by Kierkegaard and published simultaneously with an anonymously authored companion piece. Imagined Occasions both complements and stands in contrast to Kierkegaard's pseudonymously published Stages on Life's Way. The two volumes not only have a chronological relation but treat some of the same distinct themes. The first of the three discourses, On the Occasion of a Confession, centers on stillness, wonder, and one's search for God--in contrast to the speechmaking on erotic love in In Vino Veritas, part one of Stages. The second discourse, On the Occasion of a Wedding, complements the second part of Stages, in which Judge William delivers a panegyric on marriage. The third discourse, At a Graveside, sharpens the ethical and religious earnestness implicit in Stages's 'Guilty'/'Not Guilty' and completes this collection.

Reviews

These new translations are excellent. --Choice The definitive edition of the Writings. The first volume ... indicates the scholarly value of the entire series: an introduction setting the work in the context of Kierkegaard's development; a remarkably clear translation; and concluding sections of intelligent notes. --Library Journal
