Irish poet Paul Muldoon returns to the Poetry Center to read from Maggot, his new collection. “Maggot, like all Mr. Muldoon’s work, is packed with gnarled and unfamiliar terms… [his] verse works high and low,” wrote The New York Times. “The poems in Maggot play over a wide variety of human experience, but sex and death are the subjects that repeatedly cut its surface like twin dorsal fins.”
