‘Paul Muldoon, who has done so much to reimagine the poet’s task, has surpassed himself with his latest collection, Plan B, an exquisitely produced collaboration with Norman McBeath, the Scottish photographer.
“I sat one evening with the photographs and copies of the poems and, like the kind of party host we’ve all been encouraged to believe ourselves to be, allowed them to get into conversation with each other”, writes Muldoon of his collection, Plan B, which, he says, was “curated by the poems and photographs themselves”. Typically, he’s given this new genre a distinctive new name: photoetry.’ – Observer
Muldoon is the winner of the Queen’s Gold Medal for poetry 2017. Among his awards are the T.S. Eliot Prize, the Irish Times Poetry Prize, the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry, the International Griffin Prize, the 2004 American Ireland Fund Literary Award, the Shakespeare Prize and the John William Corrington Award for Literary Excellence.
