Pulitzer Prize winning poet Paul Muldoon was in Ottawa for the Writers Festival. We talk here about poetry as pemmican; about initials, dashed expectations, the movie Ice Age, James Joyce’s secular epiphanies, the luck of Shakespeare and Mozart, what constitutes great poetry, judgement, pigs, the depth of Johnny Depp, and hot water bottles.
