Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, Paul Muldoon was born in County Armagh, Northern Ireland, and now resides in the United States
where he is poetry editor of The New Yorker and Howard G. B. Clark ’21 Professor at Princeton University.
The Times Literary Supplement has called Muldoon “the most significant English-language poet born
since the Second World War.” His many awards include the Pulitzer Prize, the Griffin International
Prize for Excellence in Poetry, the American Ireland Fund Literary Award, and the European Prize for Poetry.
The author of over a dozen volumes of poetry and criticism, Muldoon’s writing is typified by its brilliant
wit and a dazzling reinvention of poetic forms.
The Wallace Stevens Poetry Program began in 1964 with funding from The Hartford to honor
Modernist master poet Wallace Stevens, a former Vice President of The Hartford. In the last half century,
the Program has brought a roster of the most important national and international poets to Connecticut.
This year’s Program is sponsored by The Hartford, as well as the University of Connecticut’s English Department
and the UConn Humanities Institute in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
