Paul Muldoon tries to distill 46 years of work and reads from his new 'Selected Poems 1968-2014'. A Rockfinch production for RTÉ.

The Poetry Programme, Saturday 15th October

In the Poetry Programme on 15 October Paul Muldoon reads from his newly-published ‘Selected Poems’, a visit to the Keats House Museum in London, and a poem by Joseph Mary Plunkett is set to music.

Paul Muldoon has published twelve major collections of poetry, the first, ‘New Weather’ in 1973, when he was still a student at Queen’s University Belfast, and the most recent, ‘One Thousand Things Worth Knowing’, just last year. Faber & Faber have now published a book of sixty ‘Selected Poems’, five each from those twelve collections. Paul talks with Rick about the new collection and tells us about an upcoming event at the John O’Connor School in Armagh.

Julien Clancy visits the Keats House Museum in London to hear about the poet’s short life and some of his most memorable poems.

The programme ends with a track from the ‘1916 Visionaries’ CD, a musical setting of Joseph Mary Plunkett’s poem ‘The Cloud’ by musician Lorcán Mac Mathúna.
