Description: Master Kierkegaard is a diary kept by a fictional servant in the house of Søren Kierkegaard. The strong-willed but faithful Magda, a well-educated and ""fallen"" woman from Berlin, considers herself fortunate to have found domestic work in Copenhagen and yet is plagued by her own demons. Two journals set in the summer of 1847, while Kierkegaard wrote his Works of Love, record Magda's reflections on Scripture, literature, and life, focusing on her sporadic yet intimate interactions with her master, Denmark's premier writer, theologian, and philosopher. Endorsements: ""Master Kierkegaard is a masterpiece of fiction and spirituality. Reading it evoked for me a feeling of serenity and thoughtfulness."" --Adela Yarbro Collins Buckingham Professor of New Testament Criticism and Interpretation at Yale Divinity School, and author of Mark: A Commentary About the Contributor(s): Ellen Brown is a writer living in Connecticut.
