Hailed by Seamus Heaney as ‘one of the era’s true originals’, Muldoon seems determined to escape definition yet this volume, chosen by the poet himself, serves as an indispensable introduction to his trademark combination of intellectual high jinx and emotional honesty. For those readers already familiar with his work, the volume provides a panoramic glance across the meteoric career of a poet who performs ‘high above the regular traffic of poetry’. (Sunday Times)
Among his many honours are the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry and the Shakespeare Prize ‘for contributions from English-speaking Europe to the European inheritance.

40 Sonnets by Don Paterson£10.99
This new collection from Don Paterson, his first since the Forward prize-winning Rain in 2009, is a series of forty sonnets. Some take a more traditional form, some are highly experimental, but what these poems share is a lyrical intelligence and musical gift that has been visible in his work since his first book of poems, Nil Nil, in 2009.
