Graduating senior Lance Rutkin sat down for a wide-ranging and candid conversation with poet Paul Muldoon, Princeton’s Howard G. B. Clark '21 Professor and Founding Chair of the Peter B. Lewis Center for the Arts. One of "the most significant English-language poets born since the second World War” (TLS), Muldoon spoke with Rutkin about his recent sea voyage around the world, his months-long drive across the United States, and his time in Ireland participating in the centenary events of the 1916 Rising, Easter Week.

Margaret Wright, a senior majoring in English who is affiliated with Rockefeller College, has taken many classes at Princeton that have taught her how to better articulate and present her opinions. To add to those skills, she said, she would like to focus instead on listening to other people — "not in order to rebut an argument or support a claim, but just to try to understand."
