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 contrast from realism. Some dominant themes include the comparison of nature to human nature, while the naturalist and the philosopher converse back and forth using their home in the natural world as inspiration. Their insights and experiences of humanity and his habitat are woven into the text in postmodern verse. Emily Isaacson's poetry actualizes silence throughout, the ability to quiet the soul in anticipation to receive from a higher source. Where 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 and serenity found only where modern society has left no footprint.
