Walter Englert is the Omar and Althea Hoskins Professor of Classical Studies at Reed College in Oregon. He earned his PhD at Stanford University, and has published on aspects of Epicureanism, Stoicism and Roman Philosophy.
Englert's translation of the poem is indeed accurate and readable. He knows the poem as thoroughly as he knows the scholarship that bears on it... an admirable translation, admirably supported by scholarly tools.-- W.R. Johnson, University of Chicag
