In this commemorative edition, we showcase the select poetry of Canadian poet Emily Isaacson, from her simple pieces to the epic. This work surrounds the guillotine of the recession that has influenced Canadians over the past decade. It is evident her readers have only begun to taste her nuances, wording, and poetic structure, including her own invention “the eclipsed poem.” Her dedicated voice has spoken in poetry to royals, cloisters, people groups, and nations.
This poignant and lyrical collection rises to stir our hearts from poverty to the ornamental. Emily Isaacson writes her sacred words as we enter the Baroque era of the internet. From her early medieval blog as a solitary unicorn to this year celebrating one million visits to her websites, her prolific verse and multi-media art spark poetry with life. She sets out to make a postmodern impact by using color and style paired with the creativity necessary for survival.
