An artist transforms the burden of their solitude into art, and so Emily Isaacson does in poetry. Her accounts of nature, cultivation, childhood, and transcendence in House of Rain are lyrical and riveting, providing a break from realism. Some dominant themes include the comparison of nature to human nature, while the naturalist and the philosopher converse back and forth using the natural world as inspiration. Their insights and experiences of humanity and his habitat are woven throughout in postmodern verse.
Emily Isaacson’s poetry actualizes silence throughout, the ability to quiet the soul in anticipation to receive from a higher source. Where we are in need of someone to take us by the hand into the realm of understanding, this she does with mirror-like tranquility and a serenity purchased from nature at great cost. Her word painting of her home in the natural world vows a deep solitude found only where modern society has left no footprint.
Over 100 poems and 20 sonnets.
