About the Author:

Paul Muldoon was born in County Armagh in 1951. He published his first collection of poems, New Weather, in 1973. He is the author of ten books of poetry, including Moy Sand and Gravel (2002), for which he received the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry, and Horse Latitudes (2006). Since 1987 he has lived in the United States, where he is the Howard G. B. Clark Professor in the Humanities at Princeton University. From 1999 to 2004 he was Professor of Poetry at Oxford University.

Review:

“[Muldoon’s] technical and linguistic brilliance is probably second to none; the poems are the textual equivalent of a high-wire act, with juggling.” ―Fran Brearton, The Guardian

“A stylish volume . . . Its elegant layout echoes almost subliminally what we have come to expect from this master of the trickster elements within language.” ―Fiona Sampson, The Independent

“The collection is dazzlingly complex . . . these poems show what a master Muldoon is in his own right.” ―Charlotte Runcie, The Telegraph

“A professor at Princeton, poetry editor at the New Yorker, rock musician and the subject of extensive critical attention, the Northern Irish poet Paul Muldoon is at the summit of a career which began in spectacular fashion with the publication of New Weather in 1973, when the poet was just twenty-one. One Thousand Things Worth Knowing, his twelfth collection, represents a consolidation rather than an extension of the elaborate and highly distinctive poetic voice he has established in the intervening four decades. His characteristic verbal hi-jinks - endless rhymes, concealed or oblique linkages and parallelisms, abrupt shifts of register, serpentine syntax, an urge to pun that borders on the pathological - provide further evidence of the poet's astounding technical gifts.” ―Oli Hazzard, The Times Literary Supplement

“Muldoon opens his 12th book of verse with an impressive set piece, one major Irish poet's lament for another. . . these densely worked poems are meant to be re-read. . . powerful . . .with witty pleasures and strong feelings to be unlocked and cherished.” ―Publishers Weekly
