Nice long (too long?) article in the Sunday New York Times magazine about Irish poet Paul Muldoon. It doesn't mention his classic Armagh/Armani poem but a few other couplets are listed. The compare and contrast with Seamus Heaney is interesting, and it's impossible to imagine Muldoon writing a poem to mark the accession of 10 new countries to the European Union in 2004, as Heaney did. Or if Muldoon did it, there'd be an elaborate joke buried somewhere.
