Overview

New Weather was Paul Muldoon's first book of poems. When it appeared in 1973, Seamus Heaney described its author as 'unusually gifted, endowed with an individual sense of rhythm, a natural and copious vocabulary, a technical accomplishment and an intellectual boldness that mark him as the most promising poet to appear in Ireland for years.' While the promise has been amply fulfilled, New Weather gives the poet's many, more recent admirers the opportunity to see what a versatile and substantial artist he was from the outset.
