This is a collection of essays by an international group of scholars, concentrating on issues of aesthetics and communication in Kierkegaard's writing. The contributors explore the constant and complex interaction in his authorship between medium and message, author, authority and reader, text and transcendence, reading and misreading. With constant reference to the religious thrust of his work, Kierkegaard is treated both as an important contributor to the theoretical discussion of communication and as a gifted literary practicioner. The perspectives are varied, and the contributors bring a range of special interests to bear on their interpretation of Kierkegaard: from Old Testament studies to opera, from theological hermeneutics to Nietzsche and contemporary feminism. There is, not surprisingly, no easy consensus but there is a recognition of the style and form of Kierkegaard's writing as being decisive for his significance today.
