Most widely held works by A. E Stallings
Lucretius on the nature of the universe by Titus Lucretius Carus( Book )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lucretius was a Roman philosopher and poet of the first century BC whose only known work is The Nature of Things (c.50 BC), a didactic poem in six books that expounds his philosophical beliefs. He followed Epicurean ideas, believing the world to be made up of tiny atoms moving in a void and viewing life in terms of pleasure and pain, representing good and bad. The Nature of Things was to have a huge influence on poets such as Virgil (whose Georgics was written only a generation later) and was to affect the course of western literature as a whole. A.E. Stalling's new translation is in rhyming couplets and uses modern terminology to reflect the impact of the original poem. Richard Jenkyns's introduction explores Lucretius' beliefs and his influence on subsequent literature. This edition also includes a preface, suggestions for further reading and notes."--Back cover

Hapax : poems by A. E Stallings( Book )

5 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hapax is ancient Greek for "once, once only, once and for all," and "onceness" pervades this second book of poems by American expatriate poet A.E. Stallings. Opening with the jolt of "Aftershocks," this book explores what does and does not survive its "gone moment"--Childhood ("The Dollhouse"), ancient artifacts ("Implements from the Grave of the Poet"), a marriage's lost moments of happiness ("Lovejoy Street"). The poems also often compare the ancient world with the modern Greece where Stallings has lived for several years. Her musical lyrics cover a range of subjects from love and family to characters and themes derived from classical Greek sources ("Actaeon" and "Sisyphus"). Employing sonnets, couplets, blank verse, haiku, Sapphics, even a sequence of limericks, Stallings displays a seemingly effortless mastery of form. She makes these diverse forms seem new and relevant as modes for expressing intelligent thought as well as charged emotions and a sense of humor. The unique sensibility and linguistic freshness of her work has already marked her as an important, young poet coming into her own."--Publisher's website

Zero : cypher of infinity by Suzanne Moore( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"[Suzanne Moore] investigates concepts and controversy around Zero. She has incorporated texts by Denis Guedj, Charles Seife, the A. E. Stallings translation of Lucretius, Sir Isaac Newton, Victoria Finlay, Gregory Orr, Wassily Kandinsky, Rainer Maria Rilke, Ralph Waldo Emerson and Emily Dickinson. She ties this seemingly disparate group of authors/scientists together with her own words, pointing out the alarmingly limitless possibilities of Zero. These texts present questions that explore the complex history and eternal mystery of the void taken from science, philosophy, calculation, and symbology all interpreted through art and text"--Priscilla Juvelis, Bookseller's website, viewed on August 4, 2015
