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 TLS named her verse translation of Lucretius’s The Nature of Things “One of the most extraordinary classical translations of recent times.” Stallings’ 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. She is also a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
