** Summer Book Box due out in June. Members get 25% off Books **


We're delighted to announce Paul Muldoon's new collection is our Summer 2024 Choice. Since his debut New Weather (1973) Paul Muldoon has created some of the most original and memorable poetry of the past half-century. Joy in Service on Rue Tagore sees him writing at the height of his powers with all the verve and distinction that have won him the highest of accolades. Here, from artichokes to zinc, he navigates an alphabet of image and history, through barleymen and Irish slavers to the last running wolf in Ulster. In the poet’s skilful hands, ancient maps are unfurled and brought into focus – from Imperial Rome to Ukraine and a Belfast shipyard. Through modern medicine and warfare, disaster and repair, these poems are electric in their energy and above all, profoundly human.

Paul Muldoon was born in County Armagh and now lives in New York. He has taught at Princeton University for thirty-five years. He is the author of fifteen collections of poetry. His awards include the T.S. Eliot Prize, Pulitzer Prize, Griffin International Prize for Poetry and the Queens Gold Medal for Poetry. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society for Literature and a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Letters.
