Paul Muldoon is an Irish poet as well as an editor, critic, and translator. He is the author of twelve major collections of poetry including New Weather (1973), Meeting the British (1987), Hay (1998), Horse Latitudes (2006) and One Thousand Things Worth Knowing (2015). His poetry has been translated into twenty languages.
Muldoon served as Professor of Poetry at Oxford University and since 1987 has taught at Princeton University, where he occupies the Howard G.B. Clark ’21 chair in the Humanities. He has been poetry editor of The New Yorker since 2007.
A recipient of the Pulitzer Prize, Paul Muldoon has won countless other awards, from the T.S. Eliot Prize to the European Prize for Poetry. He has been described by The Times Literary Supplement as "the most significant English-language poet born since the second World War."
Roger Rosenblatt, writing in The New York Times Book Review, described Paul Muldoon as "one of the great poets of the past hundred years, who can be everything in his poems - word-playful, lyrical, hilarious, melancholy. And angry. Only Yeats before him could write with such measured fury."
This event was hosted by Maynooth University’s Writer-in-Residence Eoin McNamee.
