FACILITATED AT THE INTERSECTION of faith, personal experience, and philosophical scrutiny, The Postmodern Poet: Himeros & Anteros, interrogates existence through the wordplay of formal and verbally aesthetic poetry. In his debut publication, Josiah Macrae Callaghan recounts the emotive tremors and angst released by first love and repeated heartbreak, as both boyhood idealism and faith are deeply unsettled by the suffocation of romance and the silence of the transcendent. Sensing the peculiar and vexing march of history shifting, Callaghan narrates his own sojourn, wandering from age to age and page to page, in the restless quest for requited love and an authentic spirituality in the desacralized world of postmodernism. This anthology is an ode to the once enchanted world of the divine and the sublime, a hopeful prayer for the resurrection of dreams, and a raw and vulnerable lament for the dissipation and death of that which is unrecoverable.

About the Author

JOSIAH MACRAE CALLAGHAN is a Minnesota native, born and raised outside of Minneapolis. Carrying with him the heritage of his Irish, German, and Scandinavian ancestors, Callaghan follows in the footsteps of his great-great-grandfather, Knut B. Birkeland, a minister and prolific writer. Inspired by the inherited residue of folk tales and the corpus of Western literature, from Virgil and Sappho to Milton and Emerson, Callaghan finds solace in the pursuit of wisdom and self-expression through creative writing and theological inquiry. Hereceived a Bachelor of Arts in Biblical and Theological Studies from Bethel University in 2017 and completed his Master of Arts at Luther Theological Seminary in 2020. When time allows, Josiah finds refuge in the pristine wilderness of the Boundary Waters or in the pages of an enticing classic.
