Paul Muldoon: Ways With Words
Fri, Nov 10 at 4pm
A leading member of the great generation of Northern Irish poets that includes Séamus Heaney, Paul Muldoon has been Oxford Professor of Poetry, won the Pulitzer Prize, and is now Professor in the Humanities at Princeton. He collaborated with Paul McCartney to produce two volumes of the ex-Beatle’s lyrics (2021), which shed light on McCartney’s ways with words. Paul Muldoon, the most beguiling of contemporary poets, also writes and plays rock music in Princeton bands. He reads from his work and discusses the relationship between poetry and song, including the impact of one genre on the other in his and other writers’ creativity.
