Paul Muldoon -Toppings, Bath
100 in stock
The award–winning poet delivers a sharp wake-up call with his fourteenth collection, Howdie-Skelp.
The poems in Paul Muldoon’s striking new collection include a nightmarish remake of The Waste Land, an elegy for his fellow Northern Irish poet Ciaran Carson, a crown of sonnets that responds to the early days of the Covid-19 pandemic, a translation from the ninth-century Irish, and a Yeatsian sequence of ekphrastic poems that call into question the very idea of an ‘affront’ to good taste.
A rare treat to listen to this eloquent poet perform his own compelling words.
