This is a reading by A.E. Stallings.

«One of the strongest talents to emerge in recent years.»—Poetry Magazine

Poet and translator A. E. (Alicia) Stallings studied classical Latin and Greek at the University of Georgia and the University of Oxford, and has lived in Athens, Greece since 1991. Known for her mastery of highly structured forms, her writing mines the classical world and traditional poetic techniques to craft precise and emotional dialogues between the ancient culture of her adopted homeland and contemporary concerns. “Through her technical dexterity and graceful fusion of content and form,” writes the MacArthur Foundation Selection Committee, “Stallings is revealing the timelessness of poetic expression and antiquity's relevance for today.”

Stallings has published three books of poetry, Archaic Smile which won the Richard Wilbur Award; Hapax; and Olives. Her verse translation of Lucretius’s epic-length treatise on the nature of reality, The Nature of Things, was rendered into rhyming fourteeners and called “one of the most extraordinary classical translations of recent times” by Peter Stothard of the Times Literary Supplement.

She has received a translation grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, and fellowships from United States Artists, the Guggenheim Foundation, and the MacArthur Foundation. She is also a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. She speaks and lectures widely on a variety of topics, and has been a regular faculty member at the West Chester Poetry Conference and the Sewanee Summer Writers' Conference.

Having studied in Athens, Georgia, she now lives in Athens, Greece with her husband, the journalist John Psaropoulos, and their two argonauts, Jason and Atalanta.
