Either/Or: A Fragment of Life
In Either/Or, using the voices of two characters--the aesthetic young man of part one, called simply A, and the ethical Judge Vilhelm of the second section--Kierkegaard reflects upon the search for a meaningful existence, contemplating subjects as diverse as Mozart, drama, boredom, and, in the famous Seducer's Diary, the cynical seduction and ultimate rejection of a young, beautiful woman. A masterpiece of duality, Either/Or is a brilliant exploration of the conflict between the aesthetic and the ethical - both meditating ironically and seductively upon Epicurean pleasures, and eloquently expounding the noble virtues of a morally upstanding life.For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world.
