First things first: my profile of Paul Muldoon is the cover story of the current issue of Poets & Writers Magazine (click here). This accounts for all of this summer's posts about Muldoon. I was working on this article, and trying to be secretive about it.

I've been laxed about my blogging, for which I feel bad, especially given that I put my blog in my P & W bio.

On the reading list for this weekend:
POEMS IN SPANISH by Paul Hoover
THE EROTIC LIGHT OF GARDENS by Bin Ramke
A book by Tom Bissell

Is there some reason Paul Muldoon dressed up as a "unionist"in the cover photo? It must have been daunting to do a reivew of this, is it possible to buy just that issue or the article somewhere?

I have no idea why Muldoon dressed up that way--I wasn't involved in the photo shoot--but I think he looks kinda cute.

I have no idea, either, where you'd get a copy overseas. Have you got a fax machine? I could fax you a copy if you email me the number, or mail one.

Thanks Craig, I will send those to you in an email. BTW: bought Muldoon's new essays yesterday. That guy has some ear for a link between the poems of Yeats and Keats.

Hey Craig, congrats -- this is very cool. I took a quick look at your Muldoon profile at a friend's house but need to pick up a copy of the issue myself. (I missed this issue due to a change-of-address mix-up.)

Seems like he would be a very interesting person to sit down and talk with.

I was wondering about the photos too... sort of the Mad Hatter meets Thomas Lynch...

Just in case you were sleeping for the last few days, Helen Vendler has weighted in on Muldoon. I could only get the first page of her review on line. http://www.tnr.com/
