Overheard at the Rhodes Scholars House

Just attended a talk with A.E. Stallings, a candidate for the Oxford Professor of Poetry, if that paints a picture for you. (She's awesome by the way and it's not just because she's from Decatur.)
  1. "I dabble in syllabic."
  2. "I'm a poet, because I'm too lazy to write a novel."
  3. "I know more words in Greek than my children, who are bilingual."
  4. "I was so uninspired by the poetry of the 80's."
  5. "What are your thoughts on hard syllables?"
  6. "People in Greece are always in a lawsuit with their brother."
