'Mad images and a very fixed landscape: Paul Muldoon's New Narrative'

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Muldoon's narratives have been characterised as 'endlessly implicative' postmodern digressions, but this essay argues against the characterisation of Muldoon as a post-modernist, and against poststructural readings of his work, by revealing the more modernist elements of his writing, and by applying Muldoon's own emphasis on textual closure and the curtailing of unproductive readings to the poetry of 'Meeting the British'.
