Paul Muldoon’s poetry has won more awards than there is space on this page to list; the T.S. Eliot Prize, the Irish Times Poetry Prize, and the Pulitzer are among the best known.  Born in Northern Ireland in 1951 and living in the U.S. since 1987, Muldoon is considered one of the most important poets of any nationality.  His complex, witty poems are a delight to read, and teach.  Those who don’t already know his poetry might want to look at One Thousand Things Worth Knowing, Meeting the British, Quoof, or his Selected Poems 1968-2014
