Poetry @ the Print Room is a series of live readings by major contemporary UK and international poets.
We are delighted to welcome Paul Muldoon on one of his rare visits to the UK, for this special solo reading before How It Is (Part One) by Samuel Beckett.
Paul Muldoon was born in County Armagh in 1951. He now lives in New York. A former radio and television producer for the BBC in Belfast, he has taught at Princeton University for thirty years. Prior to this he was Oxford Poetry Professor from 1999-2004. He is the author of twelve collections of poetry including Moy Sand and Gravel (2002), for which he won the 2003 Pulitzer Prize and the TS Eliot Prize, as well as Selected Poems 1968-2014 (2016). In 2017 he won the Queen’s Gold Medal for Poetry.
Roger Rosenblatt, writing recently 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.”
