Work by Chris Childers


Chris Childers teaches Latin and Greek, and coaches squash and tennis, at St. Andrew's School in Delaware, USA (appropriately, film-site of the movie Dead Poets' Society). As translator, he is hard at work on a book of Latin and Greek Lyric Poetry from Archilochus to Martial, under contract with Penguin Classics, and has translations forthcoming from PN Review, Parnassus, Arion, and others. In 2013 he was a finalist for the Ruth Lilly fellowship from the Poetry Foundation.
