(Starred Review) The first full-length book on the life and work of this outstanding poet. Tim Kendall's study was specifically written as a detailed and accessible introduction to Muldoon. Complex, probing, surprising, wide-ranging, Muldoon's poetry ranges from the exploration of his Ulster childhood, and of the Troubles, to the discovery of America by a medieval Welsh prince, and other esoteric subjects. While employing close readings, Kendall also provides the necessary contextual information -- biographical material, relevant Irish history and mythology, and sources for allusions.
