18. A.E. Stallings Quintilian: The Latin Teacher Podcast

    • Education

About Atalanta, approaches to translation, and reflections on life in both Athens, Georgia and Athens, Greece.



A.E. (Alicia) Stallings is a highly acclaimed poet and translator. A member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, she has received a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, a fellowship from the Guggenheim Foundation, and, in 2011, a prestigious “genius grant” from the MacArthur Foundation, which recognized her for “mining the classical world and traditional poetic techniques to craft imaginative explorations of contemporary life that evoke startling insights about antiquity’s relevance for today.” Her most recent verse translation is called “The Battle Between the Frogs and Mice: A Tiny Homeric Epic,” and her collection of poems “This Afterlife” will be published later in 2022.

Alicia earned a bachelor’s degree in Classics from the University of Georgia and a master’s degree from the University of Oxford. Since 1999, she has lived in Athens, Greece.



CORRECTION: Hershel Walker won the Heisman Trophy in 1982.

Quintilian is supported by a Bridge Initiative Grant from the Committee for the Promotion of Latin and Greek, a division of the Classical Association of the Middle West and South.

Music: "Echo Canyon Instrumental" by Clive Romney
