This chapter discusses the aftermath of Kierkegaard's courtship with Olsen, as well as his creative processes during a time of fairly prolific writing. During the period covered by this chapter, Kierkegaard had managed to publish a large volume of works, which are touched upon in this chapter. Of note is the publication of Either/Or (1843), which was the biggest book Kierkegaard had ever written and was published in two volumes. The chapter also further explores his experiences in Germany as well as his romantic sentiments regarding Olsen, who had had a marked influence in his works. It also examines his penchant for taking on pseudonyms.

Keywords:   Søren Kierkegaard, Regina Olsen, creative process, Germany, pseudonyms, aesthetic works, publishing, Either/Or
