In this dark comic drama, inspired by his notorious "Diary Of A Seducer," the philosopher Kierkegaard discovers a black diary in an old desk and finds himself being drawn deeper and deeper into the soul of Johannes, a seducer who has made a respectable orphaned girl, Cordelia, his prey. Step by step, Johannes shows Kierkegaard how to attract, enchant, ensnare, confuse and ultimately destroy an innocent young girl. And while this seduction is going on, Kierkegaard himself is attempting to deal with his own relationship with Regine, a girl he's loved since she was fourteen and he was twenty-five. Kierkegaard has genuine and deep feelings for Regine, but he has some serious intimacy and identity problems, spending his time writing strange books under a variety of pseudonyms, then writing vicious reviews of his own books under other assumed names, and then writing letters to periodicals defending his words, signed by still other fictitious persons. As Johannes takes a demonic artist's pleasure in arousing and reeling in Cordelia, Kierkegaard frustrates and infuriates Regine with his on again, off again passion. As Kierkegaard tries to escape from Regine, Johannes is enjoying himself immensely, playing with the lives of Cordelia, the increasingly tormented object of his desire, and his bumbling rival Edvard, her kind and well intentioned but not very bright suitor, who thinks Johannes is helping him, and soon Regine finds herself pulled deeply into the lives of Johannes, Cordelia and Edvard, people she had suspected were invented by Kierkegaard. Darkly funny and erotic, desire, art and emotional manipulation build to a deadly climax.
