By his own testimony, Unamuno learned Danish in order to read Ibsen, and was rewarded by discovering Kierkegaard. His affinity to the latter -- whom he always referred to as ''my brother Kierkegaard'' -- is not to be missed: both were passionate thinkers, exercised in heart and mind by the hidden, contra-rational character of faith's verities. And like Kierkegaard, he felt it his duty, in love, ''to make things difficult, though not more difficult than they are.'' Unamuno writes: ''The greater part of my work has been to disquiet my neighbors, to stir up the sediment of their hearts, to sow anguish in them, if possible.'' A rich reward awaits the reader who risks ''the disquiet'' of this compelling work, Unamuno's magnum opus.

An Eighth Day View:

The acknowledged masterpiece of one of Spain's most influential thinkers. Between despair and the desire for something better, Unamuno finds that "saving incertitude" that alone can console us. Dynamic appraisal of man's faith in God and in himself.
