Many happy returns of the day, Søren K.

Søren Aabye Kierkegaard was born on May 5th 1813 in Copenhagen.

Here’s a good intro to Kierkegaard by W.H. Auden, in the form of a review of Either/Or.

Auden is also responsible for this memorable ditty:

Søren Kierkegaard
tried very hard
to take the leap
but fell in a heap.


  1. Quin Finnegan says

    Auden wrote about Kierkegaard on a number of occasions. His introduction to the collection Living Thoughts of Kierkegaard is another winner – I might actually prefer it to the real thing.
