4/15: Paul Muldoon at John Carroll

Posted By on Thu, Apr 8, 2010 at 3:40 PM

Irish poet Paul Muldoon is one of the few modern wordsmiths to dent pop culture without working in the slam genre. Last year he discussed his art on The Colbert Report, reading one of his poems line by line with the host. Muldoon — a Princeton professor and Pulitzer Prize winner who The Times Literary Supplement called “the most significant English-language poet born since the second World War” — has made a career showing up in projects geared more toward the mainstream than his fancy résumé suggests. He co-wrote the title song to Warren Zevon’s 2002 album My Ride’s Here (which Bruce Springsteen covered), and he appeared in Spinal Tap Goes to 20, a documentary that marked the 20th anniversary of the 1984 movie. You can hear Muldoon read (and check out his wooly hair) when he appears at 7:30 p.m. at John Carroll University’s Dolan Science Building (20700 North Park Blvd., 216.397.4746). Admission is free. — Michael Gill
