Paul Muldoon

Alex Alonso

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


This chapter runs the rule over the poetry of Paul Muldoon, from his first collection New Weather (1973) to his latest volume One Thousand Things Worth Knowing (2015). It considers the way his work returns compulsively to his first home in Northern Ireland while also treading new paths across America, where he has lived since 1987. To this day Muldoon's career shows no signs of slowing down, even if, since moving to the United States, his work has become both easier and harder to place.
