Description
The title of Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Paul Muldoon's tenth collection of poetry refers to the areas 30 degrees north and south of the equator where sailing ships tend to stand becalmed in mid-ocean, where stasis—if not stagnation—is all too common. It is also said that this is where sailors, in the days when Spanish vessels transported horses to the West Indies, would throw their live cargo overboard to lighten the load and to conserve food and water. Horse Latitudes presents us with fields of battle and fields of debate in which we often seem to have come to a standstill, from Bosworth Field to Beijing, from the Battle of the Boyne to Bull Run, from a series of text messages written to 19th-century Irish poet Tom Moore to an elegy for Warren Zevon, and from post-Agreement Ireland to George W. Bush's America.
