Paul Muldoon at The Linen Hall
Paul Muldoon is regarded as one of Ireland’s greatest contemporary poets, known for the sophisticated handling of poetic form and technique. Born in Portadown in the 1950s, he served as the Oxford Professor of Poetry until 2004, when he relocated to New York where he lives. Muldoon holds a Pulitzer Prize for Poetry and a T. S. Eliot Prize among many recognitions of his work. In November 2022, he was appointed as the Ireland Professor of Poetry. Join the author of 14 collections of verse, for a reading from his work this February at The Linen Hall.
To describe Paul Muldoon’s influence on contemporary poetry is like trying to assess the influence of The Beatles on post-war music; it’s to be seen and heard in the work of almost every British and Irish poet since the 1970s.
