Kierkegaard's Concluding unscientific postscript by Søren Kierkegaard ( Book )
26 editions published between 1941 and 1974 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,727 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Besides a sense of personal loss at the death of David F. Swenson on February 11, 1940, I felt dismay that he had left unfinished his translation of the Unscientific Postscript. I had longed to see it published among the first of Kierkegaard's works in English. In the spring of 1935 it did not seem exorbitant to hope that it might be ready for the printer by the end of that year. For in March I learned from Professor Swenson that he had years before "done about two thirds of a rough translation." In 1937/38 he took a sabbatical leave from his university for the sake of finishing this work. Yet after all it was not finished- partly because Professor Swenson was already incapacitated by the illness which eventually resulted in his death; but also because he aimed at a degree of perfection which hardly can be reached by a translator. At one time he expressed to me his suspicion that perhaps, as in the translation of Kant's philosophy, it might require the cooperation of many scholars during several generations before the translation of Kierkegaard's terminology could be definitely settled. I hailed with joy this new apprehension, which promised a speedy conclusion of the work, and in the words of Luther I urged him to "sin boldly."
Kierkegaard's attack upon "Christendom," 1854-1855 by Søren Kierkegaard ( Book )

A short life of Kierkegaard by Walter Lowrie ( Book )
45 editions published between 1942 and 2013 in English and held by 1,421 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This little book, being simply a biography, may perhaps be more lucid than the other, in which it was sometimes difficult to see the forest for the trees. Having devoted myself for a month last year to the unaccustomed task of writing a mystery story, I may perhaps have learned to make the big events in S.K's life more thrilling than they were. And perhaps after spending the last six years translating the greater part of S.K's works I have learned to know him better than I did at first. At all events, this little book is not merely an abstract or condensation of the bigger one. It has been written afresh from beginning to end, and barely half a page here and there has been copied- except, of course, the quotations from S.K., and they have been carefully revised

The point of view for my work as an author; a report to history, and related writings by Søren Kierkegaard ( Book )
10 editions published between 1939 and 1970 in English and held by 954 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"As a spiritual autobiography, Kierkegaard's The Point of View for My Work as an Author stands with such great works as Augustine's Confessions and Newman's Apologia pro vita sua - but with a difference. It is neither a confessional autobiography nor a defense. It is an author's story of a lifetime of writing, his understanding of the common aim and comprehensive coherence of the maze of his greatly varied pseudonymous and signed works." "Entries in the Supplement document the context and development of the writings on the authorship as a whole. In addition they disclose Kierkegaard's considerations as he wrestled with decisions about publishing the three works and other works that were "the fruit of the year 1848...the year of my richest productivity.""--BOOK JACKET
Fear and trembling, and The sickness unto death by Søren Kierkegaard ( Book )
35 editions published between 1900 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 949 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The two books comprised in this volume are in greater demand than any other works of Kierkegaard. This preference is a credit to the public taste, for Kierkegaard himself called them "the most perfect books I have written," though in this commendation he included The Concept of Dread, and later stretched it to include Training in Christianity

16 editions published between 1941 and 1975 in English and held by 508 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Best known as a philosopher, one of the founders of existentialism, Kierkegaard also wrote books whose themes were primarily religious, psychological or literary. He was opposed to much in organised Christianity, stressing the necessity for individual choice against prescribed dogma and ritual. In this book, he concentrates his penetrating psychological observations on the theme of despair
