The Kierkegaardian Author: Authorship and Performance in by Joseph Westfall
By Joseph Westfall
This examine engages in a close exam of Kierkegaard's works of literary and dramatic feedback, together with these works directed at examining Kierkegaard's personal authorship, with a selected main issue for either what Kierkegaard and Kierkegaard's anonyms and pseudonyms write in regards to the nature and perform of authorship, in addition to how the Kierkegaardian authors perform authorship themselves. relocating via 5 chapters, every one dedicated to a number of works of Kierkegaard's feedback, the research develops a brand new method of examining Kierkegaard-- a brand new Kierkegaardian hermeneutic-- that starts off consistently with the nature of the writer. This new process avoids the demanding situations of critics of biographical feedback, comparable to Roland Barthes, Michel Foucault, and Jacques Derrida, through positing the writer constantly as a piece of fiction him- or herself, the construction of an unknown and ever nameless "author of the author".
