Reviews

"[O]ne of the strongest talents to emerge in recent years." --Poetry

"Stallings demonstrates formidable confidence in her technical skill, exploring fixed forms, tinking with traditions, and creating her own combinations of meter and rhyme. She also takes chances." --Harvard Review
"This is a startling first book of poems, charged with so much energy that it practically kicks the reader in the teeth. Readers who expect poetry to give them a refreshing jolt will by regaled . . . It is a pleasure to hail the arrival of A. E. Stallings." --X. J. Kennedy, The Classical Outlook
