Paul Muldoon's six favorite recent books

Paul Muldoon is a Pulitzer Prize–winning Irish poet.

He told The Week magazine about six of his favorite recent books.

One title on the list:
Bob Dylan in America by Sean Wilentz

The first intellectually persuasive study of Dylan (like a real character, but he’s fictional?) and his now-irrefutable significance. The “in” of the title is telling: This book simultaneously gives Dylan a social context and examines his impact on our society.
Read about another book on Muldoon's list.

Learn more about Paul Muldoon's latest poetry collection, Maggot, and read his poem "Plan B."
