4.0 out of 5 stars The Great Muldoon, 10 Feb 2012
This review is from: Poems 1968-1998 (Paperback)
This collection is necessary for anyone interested in the poetry of the last forty years. I guarantee any casual reader starting this book - and reading through - that you will find gems, wonderful, lyrical moments to begin with: then Muldoon finding his way through the poem as story. The first third of this book ought to be enshrined somewhere, somewhere leadlined where it will survive any sudden armageddon. Cuba, Bran, Quoof... the immaculate precise poems that only Muldoon has ever produced are really very special. As for the second two thirds of this book... Muldoon takes a different road in the mid to late 80s, some will wish to follow it - everyone should read what came before it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gilt off the gingerbread, 16 Aug 2014

Simon Barrett "Il penseroso" (london, england) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Poems 1968-1998 (Paperback)
It's a pity his publishers allowed a poet so pedantic (and pop-culture-savvy) not only to get away with a misspelt Olive Oyl (I regret I no longer have the page reference) but to give us a blood-curdling 'hove' for heave at the top of page 373 and omit the accent over 'mas' on page 384 (without the accent it means 'but', not 'more'). It wouldn't have happened in Eliot's day. Ah well - thus do our idols lose their mojo. He retains his complement of stars, though there is the little matter of that worryingly superfluous-looking 'of' on page 439.. dare one read on?
