Kierkegaard is a thinker who appropriates and weaves fairytale into his writings, as a way to think in images when logical argument fails, as a form of spiritual guidance that predates Christianity, and as a perfect example of parabolic or indirect communication that invites the reader to interpret what is being presented in the text in order to think for him/herself and awaken the imagination. Fairytale is our first introduction into psychology and hermeneutics as children and allows our imagination to find a natural home; it is also a story with a moral; and it has the capacity for spiritual awakening and therapy. I will show how and why Kierkegaard inserts the fairytale into his writings, which contains aesthetic, ethical and religious value, looking specifically at Taciturnus’ preface or what he calls a Fremlysning to Quidam’s dairy in Stages in Life’s Way. First, I place fairytale between poetry and philosophy; second, I present Stages on Life’s Way as a mutilated fairytale and "totality of ruins"; and third, I explore the motifs of the mirror, the lake, and the forest that are given in Taciturnus’ Fremlysning.

Keywords: Kierkegaard, fairytale, poetry, imagination, indirect communication, forest, lake, mirror, image, Stages on Life’s Way
