Books By Author Paul Muldoon
Meeting the British, Paperback (February 2017)
A collection of poems that range from an account of the first recorded case of germ warfare, through a meditation on a bar of soap, to a sequence of monologues spoken by some of the famous, or infamous, inhabitants of '7, Middagh Street', New York, on Thanksgiving Day, 1940.
One Thousand Things Worth Knowing, Paperback (May 2016)
A collection of poems, that is wide-ranging in its subject matter yet is everywhere concerned with watchfulness. Heedful, hard won, head-turning, heartfelt, it features poems that attempt to bring scrutiny to bear on everything, including scrutiny itself.
Berryman's Fate, Paperback (October 2014)
Gathering together poems by over fifty poets, Berryman's Fate is at once a testament to John Berryman's living presence in contemporary poetic culture and a gift on the occasion of the centenary of his birth. Contributors include Paul Muldoon, John Montague, Paula Meehan, and Martin Dyar.
