First Annual Dedalus Lecture: Paul Muldoon
“Spinoza’s Shillelagh: Some Thorny Issues in Ulysses”
In the first Annual Dedalus Lecture, Paul Muldoon clears a path through the complex thicket of imagery associated with plums, sloes, blackthorns, kidneys, cudgels, Erinautics, erotics, exotics, exile, and homecomings.
Paul Muldoon is an Irish poet and professor of poetry, as well as an editor, critic, playwright, lyricist and translator. Roger Rosenblatt, writing in The New York Times Book Review, described Paul Muldoon as ‘one of the great poets of the past hundred years, who can be everything in his poems – word-playful, lyrical, hilarious, melancholy. And angry. Only Yeats before him could write with such measured fury’.
