Three Discourses on Imagined Occasions was among seven signed works by Kierkegaard, each published concurrently with one of his seven pseudonymous works--in this case, with Stages on Life's Way. The two volumes not only have a chronological relation but distinctively treat some common themes. It is quite possible, the editors suggest, that Kierkegaard worked alternatively on the two manuscripts: on Stages at his ordinary desk and on Discourses on Imagined Occasions at his high desk.The first of the three discourses, "On the Occasion of a Confession," centers on stillness, wonder, and the ultimate object of a human being's seeking--in contrast to the speechmaking on erotic love in ""In Vino Veritas,'" part one of Stages. The second discourse, "On the Occasion of a Wedding," complements the second part of Stages in which Judge William delivers a panegyric on marriage. The third discourse, "At a Graveside," sharpens the ethical and religious earnestness implicit in Quidam's "A Story of Suffering," in the third part of the other work.
