Allen Tice is an independent scholar with graduate degrees in oral literature and statistical psychology. Though his career has been teaching both in high school and college, at the same time, he has been a poet. Much of his recent work uses rhyme and meter. With most of his Greco-Roman translations, he recreates as far as is possible in English the metrical patterns of the originals, which have a subtle and beautiful rhythmic music that is unfamiliar to most American readers since rhyme was uncommon long ago. Many of his shorter original efforts use or slightly modify Greco-Roman patterns. He also translates from German, Spanish, and Chinese.
His interest in Greco-Roman poetry began with high school Latin and expanded into early Greek. At TiceWords.com, he has a usually very quiet website that mentions, among other things, some of his scholarly activities regarding the Latin poet Valerius Catullus. He lives in New York City.
