Let Them Be Left

Front cover of Let Them Be Left by Keith Taylor   Keith Taylor January 2021

ISBN 978-1-935770-24-4

Keith Taylor’s fourth poetry chapbook with the press is a collection of intimate observations of what he finds in his immersion in the wildness of Isle Royale and what he feels upon reemergence into “Twenty-first Century Wild.”

In 1991 the National Park Service began an Artist-in-Residence program at Isle Royale and Keith was chosen as one of the first three artists that summer. Twenty-eight years later he was asked to be a Returning Artist-in-Residence, both to recreate his earlier time on the island and to help mentor some young artists chosen for the Teen-Artist-in-Residence program, a new effort to expand the now established program he had been a part of so many years earlier. The poems and prose passages in Let Them Be Left are the result of that 2019 fifteen-day stay, sometimes picking up on the themes in his work.
