Love in the Time of Plague
Canadian poet and one of the persecuted writers, to win over her audience Isaacson had to be as poignant as Edna St. Vincent Millay, as fearsome as Margaret Atwood, and as regal as the Queen. Her clear and unadulterated voice resounded through her craft with both practicality and romance. She cleared the conscience of a nation and won an audience of those who had lost interest in the dusty field of verse long ago. Rekindle poetry at its finest hour. . . This collection of old paired with new, includes Emily Isaacson’s most well-known sonnets with fifteen new ones. Many of her beloved poems have prophesied plague. As a postmodern poet, her work surrounds the guillotine of the pandemic that has taken the modern world by surprise and its economic hardship. She sets out to make a postmodern impact by using colour and style paired with the creativity necessary for survival. She knew intrinsically that people would redesign their lives. How they would continue on questions the ingenuity and desperation people have to save what matters most to them in crisis.
