Acclaimed American poet A.E. Stallings studied Classics at the University of Georgia and Oxford. She has published three collections of poetry — Archaic Smile, Hapax, and Olives — and has been praised in The Hudson Review as the “most gifted formalist of her generation.” She is also a highly-regarded translator; the Times Literary Supplement named her verse translation of Lucretius’s The Nature of Things “one of the most extraordinary classical translations of recent times.” Stallings’s awards include a translation grant from the National Endowment for the Arts and fellowships from United States Artists, the Guggenheim Foundation, and the MacArthur Foundation. A member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, she lives in Athens, Greece.
