Paul Muldoon, the Howard G.B. Clark '21 University Professor in the Humanities, professor of creative writing in the Lewis Center for the Arts, and chair of the Fund for Irish Studies, has been awarded the Freedom of the City of London in recognition of his outstanding contribution to poetry. He was nominated by The Honourable Irish Society, which commissioned Muldoon to write a cantata to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the society in 2013. Muldoon will receive the award, which is believed to have begun in 1237, at Guildhall, London, on March 17.
