In collaboration with the WPRB’s Publicity and Promotions department, News will be presenting an interview today and Sunday with poet and part-time rock star, Paul Muldoon. Muldoon is the Howard G. B. Clark Professor and Chair of the Peter B. Lewis Center for the Arts at Princeton University. His collections include New Weather (1973), Meeting the British (1987), Moy Sand and Gravel (2002, garnered a Pulitzer Prize) and, most recently, Horse Latitudes (2006). He is also the Poetry editor of the New Yorker magazine. Though best known for his own poetry, Muldoon writes lyrics and plays guitar in a band called Rackett. Rackett is scheduled to perform Saturday May 2nd at the Performing Arts Center in Princeton New Jersey and at the Bowery Poetry Club on May 16 and June 20. A returning guest on Discourse, Muldoon focuses this time on the connections between his poetry and his music. Tune in today at around 7:30 EST (subject to change) and Sunday, May 3rd at 12:00pm EST. Or just listen here:
This is Muldoon’s second appearance on Discourse. During his first interview on the show, Muldoon read his poem “Wind and Tree” from New Weather (1973).
