About the author:
Rodney Wilder graduated from Portland State University, a BA in English in one hand and an ostentatious writing quill in the other. Having been born in the same month as Edgar Allan Poe, Lord Byron, and Peter Steele, his passion for writing has always come heavily tempered with a dark romanticism. Having also come to know the life-changing love of Jesus Christ, he has always written with Matthew 5:16 as his primary motivation.
"Let your light shine among men, so they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven."
Ars Golgothica, his first published collection of poetry, demonstrates the two's convergence.
When not elucubrating his wordy verse, he enjoys horror movies, gypsy punk, and spending time with his wife, Brittany, and their cats, Lulu and Zuko, in their home in Tigard, OR.
A Collection of Poems
Ars Golgothica, the literary foray by Rodney Wilder, collects the prolific poet's best work to date in a book at once both inspiring and unflinchingly convicting. Hinged by the crucifix, this collection explores the foreshadowing and legacy of the cross, turning the Poe-tinted glasses of Wilder's scintillating verse on Biblical incidents and contemporary issues alike. Substance abuse, injustice, love, faith and doubt. The poems contained in Ars Golgothica are captivating in their honesty, shirking denominational constraints for the Calvary-cresting source that is Christ. Wilder's Gothicized poetry, as diverse in style as in its content, applies that heart to the world with a rapturous and irresistible passion.
