"The most gifted formalist of her generation" (Hudson Review), MacArthur winner A.E. Stallings uses her training as a Greco-Roman scholar to experiment with poetic structure. Along with three collections of poetry, Archaic Smile, Hapax, and Olives, and a verse translation of Lucretius, The Nature of Things, her work has appeared in Best American Poetry, the Atlantic Monthly, and the New Yorker. She has received fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation and United States Artists.
This series of poetry readings is organized and hosted by author, poet, and UCLA professor Stephen Yenser. Cosponsored by the UCLA Department of English, the Friends of English, and the UCLA Department of Cultural and Recreational Affairs
