9781848611412: No Back Door

No Back Door is the fourth collection from Mervyn Taylor, a Trinidad-born poet who divides his time between Brooklyn and his native island. About Taylor's poems Derek Walcott has observed, "The sense of search, of the avoidance of flash, mutes his meters to an admirable degree, and the tone, which he found remarkably early, keeps him separate and unique."
