The Debt

PhD student, Trudeau Scholar publishes poetry collection

Research | Books at Memorial

Set against the backdrop of a post-moratorium St. John’s, N.L., Andreae Callanan’s The Debt explores tensions between tradition and innovation, and between past and present in a province unmoored by loss and grief.

The Debt is about development and change, idleness and activism, ecological stewardship, feminism, motherhood, the personal and the political.

Exploring our dues

It is also about resistance – against the encroaching forces of greed and capitalism, even against the accumulated notions of the self.

The collection of poems is an argument for community and connection in an age increasingly associated with isolation of the individual.

The Debt explores the dues we all owe: to nature, to those who came before us and to one another.

Andreae Callanan is a doctoral candidate in the Department of English, Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, and a Trudeau Scholar.

The Debt is published by Biblioasis.
