We want Your answers to our questions. Why would a god trust the world, with so many murderous, slanderous, sinful works brought forth on a daily basis? The last stanza ties in another metaphor to the situation: We forget the god under this crown of thorns. It is called Arsing About With Poems. The hedgehog gives nothing Away, keeping itself to itself. The hedgehog gives nothing Away, keeping itself to itself. We want Your answers to our questions.

This Hedgehog Still Has Secrets…

hedgehog paul muldoon

The snail moves like a Hovercraft, held up by a Rubber cushion of itself, Sharing its secret With the hedgehog. Huge metaphor Hedgehog could relate to any person. A poet of tremendous generosity and warmth, Collins opens up about his own ethnic identity, the minimal role — as he sees it — of his Irish-ness in his work, and his work as Poet Laureate to give high school students the chance to interact with poetry without the intermediary of a teacher. So, to an experienced hedgehog caretaker, the startling end to the Muldoon poem makes absolute sense. I try to love everybody and dislike only those who deserve it but in a kind, funny, sometimes sarcastic manner. We want Your answers to our questions. But in fact, what reason would a god have to trust in mankind? After reading it again and again, the hedgehog has yet to spill all of his secrets to me.

But in fact, what reason would a god have to trust in mankind? After reading it again and again, the hedgehog has yet to spill all of his secrets to me. In response to the prize his most recent volume of poetry, published in 2006, is entitled Hoarse Platitudes. We wonder what a hedgehog Has to hide, why it so distrusts. We say, Hedgehog, come out Of yourself and we will love you. Often personal, the poems are also very accessible, playful, but not as allusive and elusive as some of Muldoon's later work. Who is the hedgehog and who is the snail? Several of Muldoon's poems seek to engage with public life and shared experience and demonstrate Muldoon's belief in the legitimacy of mass cultural experience.

Around this time of year, in literary circles, Paul Muldoon's name gets thrown around a lot. We say, Hedgehog, come out Of yourself and we will love you. To me, knowing hedgehogs as I do, the poem resonated with a number of issues long considered back to the Greek lyric poet Archilochus — c. We forget the god under this crown of thorns.

Muldoon eventually left Queens with a 3rd-class degree and was immediately hailed as genius and a key figure of the Irish Literary Renaissance, although he himself wasn't sure of this new-found fame and, when at parties and other social gatherings, he tended to hide in the nearest available narthex. We say, Hedgehog, come out Of yourself and we will love you. Certainly, Paul Muldoon deserves to win the Nobel Prize in Literature. I hope that you will have the opportunity to hear Muldoon read from his work when he appears at Lenoir-Rhyne for his rescheduled visit.

The hedgehog Shares its secret with no one. He eventually wound up at Queen's University, Belfast, having had many adventures along the way, involving Red, White and Blue Indians, Paul Klee, spuds, more spuds, even more spuds, and The Great Pink-Spotted Potato Famine of 1966. And then of course, the poem causes so many questions to arise, making it all the more intriguing as a reader. We want Only to listen to what You have to say. Creates the allusion of one long sentence.
