Description: "Philosophy", Ludwig Wittgenstein once remarked, "ought really to be written only as a form of poetry" Yet he refused to formulate an aesthetics, declaring that one can no more define the "beautiful" than to determine "what sort of coffee tastes good". Marjorie Perloff, our foremost critic of twentieth-century poetry, argues that Wittgenstein speaks to poets because he provides a way out of the impasse of high versus low discourse, demonstrating the inescapable strangeness of ordinary language.

"Perloff traces four themes of post-modernist theory and poetics with nimble sophistication. Her writing is characteristically clear and energetic". -- Kenneth Baker, San Francisco Chronicle Book Review
