More About Arsenic . . .

This collection highlights 58 distressed sonnets by Canadian poet Emily Isaacson. The publication of these early works detail her emergence as a writer of sonnets, a distinct and strict templative form. Her own genius adds to their complexity as she deviates from form on occasion to produce a reward to the eye and ear. Her sonnets are a practiced voice of the new millennium, with much to glean from.
