This is a major study of Kierkegaard and love. Amy Laura Hall explores Kierkegaard's description of love's treachery, difficulty, and hope, reading his Works of Love as a text that both deciphers and complicates the central books in his pseudonymous canon: Fear and Trembling, Repetition, Either/Or, and Stages on Life's Way. In all of these works, the characters are, as in real life, complex and incomplete, and the conclusions are perplexing. Hall argues that a spiritual void brings each text into being, and her interpretation is as much about faith as about love. In a style that is both scholarly and lyrical, she intimates answers to some of the puzzles, making a poetic contribution to ethics and the philosophy of religion.

'This is the most analytically persuasive and, at the same time, homiletically moving interpretation of Kierkegaard's corpus as a whole of which I know.' George Lindbeck, Yale Divinity School 'Kierkegaard and the Treachery of Love does make several welcome corrections to the received interpretation of Kierkegaard ... Hall's work offers us an extremely contentious but nevertheless supportable and scholarly reading of Kierkegaard ... clarification, reasoned provocation and insightful exposition ...'. The Heythrop Journal
