Overview

Ostensibly, A Literary Review is a straightforward commentary by S&oslashren Kierkegaard on the work of a contemporary novelist. On deeper levels, however, it becomes the existential philosopher’s far-reaching critique of his society and age, and its apocalyptic final sections inspired the central ideas in Martin Heiddeger’s influential work Being and Time. Embraced by many readers as prophetic, A Literary Review and its concepts remain relevant to our current debates on identity, addiction, and social conformity.
