An artist transforms the burden of their solitude into art, and so Emily Isaacson does in poetry. Her accounts of nature, cultivation, childhood, and transcendence in House of Rain are lyrical and riveting, providing a break from realism. The naturalist and the philosopher converse back and forth using the natural world as inspiration, while their insights and experiences of humanity and his habitat are woven throughout in postmodern verse.

Emily Isaacson's poetry actualizes silence throughout, the ability to quiet the soul in anticipation to receive from a higher source. When we are in need of someone to take us by the hand into the realm of understanding, this she does with mirror-like tranquility. Her word painting of the natural world and the house in which she lives vow a deep solitude found only where modern society has left no footprint.
