Event description: 

Translation Talk with A.E. Stallings: “Discussing the historical and homoerotic verse of C. P. Cavafy.”

Award-winning poet and translator A.E. Stallings will talk about the historical and homoerotic verse of C. P. Cavafy, widely regarded as one of the greatest poets of the twentieth century. Stallings will explore the sound effects in Cavafy’s Greek and ask how they are lost or found in English translation. Known for her own rhymed translation of Greek and Latin classics— including Lucretius’s On The Nature of Things, which the TLS called “one of the most extraordinary classical translations of recent times,” and, more recently, for her rendering of Hesiod’s Works and Days—Stallings is “one of the strongest talents to emerge in recent years” (Poetry Magazine).
