Recipient of the 2008 Poet's Prize Recipient of the 2008 Benjamin H. Danks Award 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.… (mer)

With an academic background in English literature, and a good bit of reading under my belt, I have found my contemporary poetic voice in A E Stallings: a woman's sensibility, a poet's wondrous eye and ear for metaphor, a joy in (and playing with) poetic forms, a background in Classics. Indeed, Stallings sometimes dips into Greek mythology to refresh contemporary experience even as she renders contemporary experience immediate, even (beautifully) painful. I actually have this book on my nightstand and read a few poems each night. They always yield a new twist, a new delight in form or implication, a new pleasure. Stallings is my absolute favorite modern poet, bar none, and has been for several years. ( )

I liked these poems, especially the limericks about mythological characters. However, I think that her volume Archaic Smiles was a better collection. ( )

The first line of “Aftershocks,” the first poem in Hapax, reads: “We are not in the same place after all.” And indeed, the rest of this highly polished second collection of verse by A. E. Stallings bears out that realization by offering new, and occasionally daring, plateaus from which to see traditional poetic forms used to engage the complex and protean nature of contemporary life.
