Arsenic: 58 Distressed Sonnets

by Emily Isaacson

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.

Poet Emily Isaacson is the director of the Wild Lily Institute in Mission, British Columbia. She has been writing for over thirty years, and has published over 1500 poems. Her prolific verse and multimedia art bring poetry to life, with over a million visits to her websites by more than 45 countries.
