Mitchell Starrett Buck (10th Feb. 1887 - 12 May 1959) was an American poet, translator and classical scholar. His volumes of verse and prose poetry were deeply influenced by 1890s aestheticism as well as classical Greek and Roman Literature. His work Syrinx: Pastels of Hellas, which was published by his friend Donald Evans on his Claire Marie Press in 1914, was praised by H.L. Mencken who remarked that Syrinx contained "a series of Grecian rhapsodies in rhythmic prose, many of them of considerable beauty." Buck also published prose works and a biography of Casanova.
