Vincent Ferrer, OP, (Valence: Saint Vincent Ferrer, IPA: [sam visɛm fereɾ]) (23 Janvier 1350 au 5 Avril 1419) était un moine dominicain valencien, qui a acquis une renommée en tant que missionnaire et un logicien. Il est honoré comme un saint de l'Église catholique.
Vincent later claimed that the Great Schism had such a depressing effect on his mind that it caused him to be seriously ill at the age of forty. He claimed that God healed him and instructed him to go out and convert many. For twenty-one years he was said to have traveled to England, Scotland, Ireland, Aragon, Castile, France, Switzerland, and Italy, preaching the Gospel and converting many. Many biographers believe that he could speak only Catalan, but was endowed with the gift of tongues.
He preached to St. Colette of Corbie and to her nuns, and it was she who told him that he would die in France. Too ill to return to Spain, he did, indeed, die in Brittany. Breton fishermen still invoke his aid in storms. In Spain, he is also the patron of orphanages.
Mules, Paul Muldoon's second collection, was published in 1977.'Muldoon seems to me unusually gifted, endowed with an individual sense of rhythm, a natural and copious vocabulary, a technical accomplishment and an intellectual boldness that mark him as the most promising poet to appear in Ireland for years.'
