Born in Northern Ireland, poet Paul Muldoon is a major literary voice on both sides of the Atlantic, having won the America's Pulitzer Prize, Canada's Griffin Prize, and Britain's T. S. Eliot Prize. Muldoon, who has lived in the U. S. since 1987, is Howard G. B. Clark '21 Professor in the Humanities at Princeton University. Muldoon, the author of Moy Sand and Gravel (2003 Pulitzer Prize) and many other books, describes his process of composition and notes the way a poetic line stands on the border between sense and nonsense. He reads and discusses his poem, "The Loaf," and remarks on the political content of his poetry. Muldoon also reads some lines in Irish by the poet Nuala NĂ­ Dhomhnaill and reads his English translation of her work.
