Paul MuldoonPaul Muldoon’s credits are extensive and diverse. The author of more than thirty books of poetry, he has written opera libretti, co-wrote “My Ride’s Here” with Warren Zevon (recorded by Zevon and later by Bruce Springsteen), penned essays and criticism, written children’s stories, edited and translated books, and served as a radio and television producer for BBC, Professor of Poetry at the University of Oxford and Poetry Editor of The New Yorker. He won the 2003 Pulitzer Prize for poetry, plays guitar and writes lyrics for Wayside Shrines and is Howard G. B. Clark ’21 Professor at Princeton University.

You can hear Paul Muldoon online, or, better yet, go hear him in person at Town Hall in Seattle on Thursday, February 28, 2013, 7:30pm.
