Paul Muldoon to read at John Carroll, April 15

In panning Paul Muldoon’s resume, you’ll find entries familiar among the most accomplished of contemporary writers: prolific and Pulitzer Prize-winning poet, editor, professor, rock star, opera composer, producer for the BBC, guest on "The Colbert Report"…

Wait. We’re still talking about a poet, right?

Yes, if the poet happens to be Paul Muldoon.

Not only does the Irishman and current Howard G. B. Clark '21 Professor at Princeton University have nearly 30 books of poetry to his name—for which he’s won the T.S. Eliot Prize and the Pulitzer Prize, among others—but his writings also include a handful of children’s books, translations, and plays. Last year, he was one of several poets invited by President Obama to read poetry at the White House. Muldoon is also a librettist (writing the “lyrics” part of operas), and yes, he even collaborated on songwriting with the late Warren Zevon.

Muldoon’s extensive reading tour schedule includes locations like New York, Sacramento, Belfast, Montreal, Madrid, and a little place called Cleveland, Ohio. He’ll be bringing his words (and his unruly mop of hair) to John Carroll University this Thursday.

If you aren’t enticed yet, check out his appearance on The Colbert Report below.
