The Lily of the Field and the Bird of the Air
Søren Kierkegaard (trans. by Bruce H. Kirmmse)
Recommendations from our site
“In Kierkegaard’s hands, the lily and the bird are a kind of foil to the human experience, which is far from carefree—it’s actually an experience full of anxiety and self-consciousness and that sense of being seen and judged by others. He saw being human as kind of like a task that everyone has to learn, and he’s really exploring this question of how to be human in these discourses in a very beautiful, poetic way. I would recommend this book as an entry point into Kierkegaard’s thinking.” Read more...
