Ruben Moi

Paul Muldoon and the Language of Poetry is the first book in years that attends to the entire oeuvre of the Irish-American poet, critic, lyricist, dramatist and Princeton professor from his debut with New Weather in 1973 up to his very recent publications. Ruben Moi’s book explores, in correspondence with language philosophy and critical debate, how Muldoon’s ingenious language and inventive form give shape and significance to his poetry, and how his linguistic panache and technical verve keep language forever surprising, new and alive.

Staging Ireland’s Dispossessed

Sarah Jane Scaife’s Beckett in the City Project

Anna McMullan

This article explores the tension between the growing cultural capital of the Beckett ‘brand’ and the issues of dispossession which are at the heart of Beckett’s work through an investigation of selected productions from the Beckett in the City project, a series of site-specific performances of Beckett’s work directed by Sarah Jane Scaife. The discussion of Dublin performances of Act Without Words II (2013) and Beckett in the City: the Women Speak (2015) in marginalized urban spaces draws on writing by Judith Butler and Athena Athanasiou on dispossession.
