From the Katz Lectures in the Humanities: "Perloff, one of America’s most prominent critics of contemporary poetry, is renowned for her study of the avant-garde. She is the author of many books and essays on poetry, among them her most recent publication, 21st Century Modernism: The “New” Poetics (2002), Wittgenstein’s Ladder: Poetic Language and the Strangeness of the Ordinary (1996), Radical Artifice: Writing Poetry in the Age of Media (1992), her best-known work, and The Poetics of Indeterminacy: Rimbaud to Cage (1981), winner of the Phi Kappa Phi Book Award. She has held many prominent positions, including the Presidency of the American Comparative Literature Association from 1993 to 1995, and is currently Sadie Dernham Patek Professor Emerita of Humanities at Stanford University."
