1/30/09: Poet Paul Muldoon

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – The Irish-born Paul Muldoon has been called "one of the five or so best poets alive." He's won the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry, chairs the Lewis Center for the Arts at Princeton and is Poetry Editor for The New Yorker Magazine. But before you settle on an image of the poet and professor, you should also note that he owns an arsenal of electric guitars and is in a garage band called "Rackett." Muldoon was in Salt Lake City last year and joined Doug to talk about great poets, his own poetry, and rock-n-roll. (Rebroadcast)
