"Yet my eye is drawn once again, " "Almost against its wishes, " "To the figure in the shadows, " "Willowy, and clean-shaven, " "As if he simply wandered in" "Between mending that fuse " "And washing the breakfast dishes."--"The Bearded Woman, by Ribera" Sven Birkerts has said, "It is not usual for a poet of Muldoon's years to have an oeuvre disclosing significant shifts and evolutions. But Muldoon, more than most, is an artist in high flight from self-repetition and the deadening business of living up to created expectations." The body of work in "Poems 1968-1998"--a comprehensive gathering of Paul Muldoon's eight volumes---finds a great poet reinventing himself and recreating the business of poetry. The thirty-year effort of Muldoon's career thus far, is altogether like a fascinatingly mutable climate in which each freshening period brings---as his first collection was predictively titled---new weather

An anthology of poems by an Irish-American writer. In Horses, he writes: "A sky. A field. A hedge flagrant with gorse. / I'm trying to remember, as best as I can, / if I'm a man dreaming I'm a plowhorse / or a great plowhorse dreaming I'm a man."

The annals of Chile by Paul Muldoon( Book )

27 editions published between 1994 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 583 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Annals of Chile, Paul Muldoon's first book of new poetry since the acclaimed Madoc: A Mystery (1991), confirms the widely held view that he is the most talented poet of his generation. The heart of the book is the long poem "Yarrow", in which all Muldoon's powers of insight and wordplay and surprising association are on exuberant display. Evoking the 1960s, the poet conjures up a boundless historical present peopled at once by Davy Crockett and Tristan Tzara and Wild Bill Hickok, by Maud Gonne and Michael Jackson, all brought swiftly and vividly to life by his fantastical imagination. The book also contains a group of shorter poems, including "The Birth", a delicate lyric which celebrates the arrival of a baby daughter; "Incantata", a powerful elegy to a former lover; and Muldoon's inspired adaptation of an episode from Ovid's Metamorphoses. Art, Muldoon writes, "builds from pain, from misery, from a deep-seated hurt / a monument to the human heart"; and here, out of strong emotion, in memorable language, Muldoon has once again fashioned rich and vital poetry

To Ireland, I by Paul Muldoon( Book )

21 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in English and held by 485 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In To Ireland, I, the Clarendon Lectures in English 1998, Paul Muldoon produces a firework display of scholarship, wit, and intrigue, in a wander through the alphabet of Irish literature. From a mischievous beginning in Amergin - 'the first poet of Ireland' - Muldoon forges link after link between the disparate and the unlikely, until modernists and medievalists appear as congenial neighbours on the half-lit, literary streets of Ireland." "A provocative A to Z, with a particular emphasis on the continuity of the tradition, To Ireland, I is a jaunt through Irish literature from one of the most important poets of his generation."--Jacket
