Renowned scholar and critic Marjorie Perloff discusses American composer and music theorist John Cage. Exploring his poetic texts, Perloff looks at his role as a central precursor of Conceptualist poetics. In such works as “Writing through Howl,” and the critical biographical “essays” on Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg and Arnold Schoenberg—essays largely constructed from the words of the artists (and composer) themselves—Cage invented a new form of poem-critique that looked ahead to our own moment. $10, $7 for students and seniors, free to Poets House members (rmharris)
