`… remarkably thought-provoking study, … But this is not your usual instroduction - this examination of both modernity ad Kirkegaard through the prism of the complex of phenomena termed `melancholy' gives both novice and veteran in Kierkegaard studies a very rich book, deserving and repaying re-readings.' - Religious Studies Vol 31
