By Søren Kierkegaard, Edna H. Hong, Howard V. Hong

Presented right here in a brand new translation, with a old creation through the translators, Fear and Trembling and Repetition are the main poetic and private of Søren Kierkegaard's pseudonymous writings. released in 1843 and written less than the names Johannes de Silentio and Constantine Constantius, respectively, the books show Kierkegaard's transmutation of the private into the lyrically religious.

Each paintings makes use of as some degree of departure Kierkegaard's breaking of his engagement to Regine Olsen--his sacrifice of "that unmarried individual." From this starting Fear and Trembling turns into an exploration of the religion that transcends the moral, as in Abraham's willingness to sacrifice his son Isaac at God's command. This religion, which persists within the face of the absurd, is rewarded eventually via the go back of all that the devoted one is prepared to sacrifice. Repetition discusses the main profound implications of team spirit of personhood and of identification inside of swap, starting with the ironic tale of a tender poet who can't satisfy the moral claims of his engagement end result of the attainable results of his marriage. The poet ultimately despairs of repetition (renewal) within the moral sphere, as does his consultant and pal Constantius within the aesthetic sphere. The e-book ends with Constantius' intimation of a 3rd form of repetition--in the non secular sphere.

Therefore, the task of Frater Taciturnus is to “experiment a character,” not to experiment with or on a character. Likewise, Johannes de Silentio is “a poetic [experimented, imaginatively “made”] person who exists only among poets”48 and who in turn is the dialectical poet who poetizes or “experiments” ethical-religious issues in the form of ideal actuality in the imaginatively constructed work titled Fear and Trembling. 50 For Kierkegaard himself, the use of the terms Experiment and experimentere had some fateful personal consequences that arose from two misunderstandings.
