Modern-day poet Gisele C. St. Arnault unveils creative masterpiece on topics of the extremes

This is the book that articulates fervent raw emotions into poetry. With precision, the author Gisele C. St. Arnault paints the pictures of life, love and everything in between. The Joys and Sorrows of Life is not only a compilation of descriptive poetry, but it is, above all, an expression of immense passion that roots from within.

Whether one reads the light-hearted poems on kids, such as “Snoring” and “My Nasty Shoe”, or the more poignant and insightful ones about death and loss, such as “Forget Me Not” and “Leaving Me Behind”, St. Arnault is indeed triumphant in bringing out dormant sentiments from one’s inner subconscious.

An ambivalent composition that speaks of love and sorrow, finding and longing, motivation and pain, youth and death, truly, the book is a powerful core-shaker.

This book will be featured at the New York Library Association Book Exhibit in Saratoga Springs, N.Y. on November 2-5, 2011.
