    Book Description:
    Using imagery that is subtle yet richly evocative, Mervyn Taylor creates whole lives in just a few short lines. Piquant details and a detached, acutely perceptive voice draw the reader into atmospheres swollen with feeling. These are poems that open up new worlds in which readers may live— Publishers Weekly. [In his poems] I have discovered Taylor’s remarkable ministorytelling talent, his cool, aphoristic phrasing, his tonally discreet prose lyricism, and his quiet, ironic world view. A poet of technical expertise, thematic understatement, language subtlety, and human warmth and compassion— Andrew Salkey, World Literature Today. Mervyn Taylor divides his time between New York and his native Trinidad. He received his BA from Howard University and his MFA from Columbia University. THE GOAT is his second book of poems from Junction Press. AN ISLAND OF HIS OWN (from Junction) is available from SPD.
