“Always stay near me, for tomorrow I will have much to do and more than I ever had, and tomorrow blood will leave my body above the breast.”

 “Um, I don’t follow.”

Amidst competing claims of beauty, truth and goodness, Trajan, a young man named after a once celebrated Roman Emperor, attempts to decipher why it is that Kant is wrong, love is capricious, and why you should never take advice from a puppet.

In this fictionalized diatribe against modern accounts of eros, York explores the interconnections between love, death, and philosophy. The author follows various philosophical and theological meditations as espoused through the musing of several hedonistic college students as they attempt to navigate the world conferred upon them. Their desire for consistency lays bare the disconcerting conclusion that our current conception of ‘love as yearning’ can only, logically, end in death.

About The Author:

Tripp York, Ph.D., is an Assistant Professor of Religious Studies at Elon University, in Elon, NC. His writings have been published in various magazines and journals, and his first book, The Purple Crown: The Politics of Martyrdom, details the history and theology behind the practice of Christian martyrdom. An actor and a lighting designer, York resides in his hometown of Burlington, NC with his Siberian husky who keeps him, begrudgingly, in good shape. Anesthesia is his first work of fiction.
