Kierkegaard's Metaphors is a comprehensive discussion of how metaphor is informed by and befits Kierkegaard's entire authorship. It surveys contemporary Kierkegaardian literature that either directly or tangentially addresses Kierkegaard's metaphorical style, and literature by literary scholars, poets, and writers who address esthetic, philosophical, ethical, and religious implications of metaphor that are on par with Kierkegaard's treatment of metaphor.

Despite that they didn't know each other, the writing styles of American writer Herman Melville (1819-1891) and Danish writer Søren Kierkegaard (1813-1855) complement each other, especially their humor, irony, penchants for paradox, and passions for imagery and poetics. In addition, their works similarly address issues of the world and time. Esthetic, ethical, social, philosophical, and theological paths on which they walk reveal similar footprints.
