Stephanos Papadopoulos was born in 1976 in North Carolina and raised in Paris and Athens. Educated in the US and Edinburgh, he holds a degree in classical archaeology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. His poetry has been published in major periodicals on both sides of the Atlantic, and attracted the attention of Nobel Laureate Derek Walcott, who invited him to attend the Rat Island Foundation's first program on St. Lucia. In March 2001, he was invited to read in an international lineup at Oxford University for the United Nation's Dialogue Among Civilizations poetry festival. Lost Days is his first collection.
"A streetwise, well-travelled penseroso. He has a distinctive body of subject matter. He has a sharp eye...work so execeptionally rich in atmosphere and observation." (Poetry Review)
