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.
