About the event

In honor of the poet, editor, and critic Stanley Burnshaw, join us for a lecture by Paul Muldoon. Heralded by The Times Literary Supplement as "the most significant English-language poet born since the second World War,” Muldoon will speak on the translation of Gaelic poetry.

Muldoon is the author of over thirty collections of poetry and the recipient of the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry and the T. S. Eliot Prize. Since 1987 he has lived in the United States, where he is currently the Howard G.B. Clark ’21 University Professor in the Humanities at Princeton University, and the Poetry Editor of The New Yorker.

Stanley Burnshaw was an influential poet, critic, translator, editor, publisher and novelist. Amongst his many publications is The Seamless Web, on the origins of poetic creativity. The Stanley Burnshaw Lecture is hosted every other year by The Harry Ransom Center for Research in the Humanities at the University of Texas, Austin.
