Description

Paul Muldoon is undisputedly a master poet. Many of his poems distinctly take up the poetic tradition yet skew it with half-rhymes and unlikely subjects for classic forms, and also engage deeply with the troubled politics of his native Northern Ireland yet intertwine them with Muldoon's own personal history, mythology and esoteric symbolism. In his 11th collection, the Pulitzer Prize winner and former professor of poetry at Oxford is as good as ever. Amid the usual parade of poetic forms (a riddle, haiku and pantoum, among others) he treats post 9/11 America (those were my twin towers, right?; aging, fatherhood and mortality.
