Join us for a reading by two of the finest English-language poets at work in
the world today.
Paul Muldoon was born in County Armagh in 1951 and, since 1987, has
lived in the United States, where he is the Howard G.B. Clark Professor in
the Humanities at Princeton University. He is the author of thirteen books
of poetry, including Moy Sand and Gravel, for which he received the 2003
Pulitzer Prize for Poetry and, this autumn, Frolic and Detour (Faber), another
collection which shows “Muldoon's technical and linguistic brilliance is
probably second to none; the poems are the textual equivalent of a highwire
act, with juggling.” (Guardian).
Alice Oswald lives in Devon and is married with three children. Carol Ann
Duffy describes her as “the best UK poet now writing, bar none” and her
collections include Dart, which won the 2002 T.S. Eliot Prize, Woods etc.
(Geoffrey Faber Memorial Prize), A Sleepwalk on the Severn (Hawthornden
Prize), Weeds and Wildflowers (Ted Hughes Award), Memorial (Warwick Prize
for Writing), and Falling Awake, which won the 2016 Costa Poetry Award
and the Griffin Prize for Poetry. Just elected as Oxford Professor of Poetry,
Nobody, her latest work, is out this autumn.
