The pseudonymous volumes of Either/Or are the writings of a tender guy (I) and of pass judgement on William (II). The ironical younger man's papers contain a suite of sardonic aphorisms; essays on Mozart, sleek drama, and tedium; and "The Seducer's Diary." The seeming miscellany is a reflective presentation of points of the "either," the esthetic view of life.

Part II is an older friend's "or," the moral lifetime of built-in, real personhood, elaborated in discussions of private turning into and of marriage. The solution of the "either/or" is left to the reader, for there isn't any half III until eventually the looks of levels on Life's means.
