(28 Eylül 1931, Viyana)
Perloff was born Gabriele Mintz into a secularized Jewish family in Vienna. Faced with Nazi terror, her family emigrated in 1938 when she was six-and-a-half, going first to Zürich and then to the United States, settling in Riverdale, Bronx|Riverdale], New York. After attending college at Oberlin College|Oberlin] in Ohio, she graduated from Barnard College in New York in 1953, doing graduate work at the Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. (MA, 1956; PhD 1965).
After teaching at Catholic University (1966-71) she became Professor of English at the University of Maryland, College Park (1971-76) and Professor of English and Comparative Literature at the University of Southern California (1976-86) and then at Stanford University (1986-90). She then became Sadie Dernham Patek Professor of Humanities at Stanford (1990—2000, Emerita from 2001). She is currently scholar-in-residence at the University of Southern California.
Her work has been especially concerned with explicating the writing of experimental and avant-garde poets and relating it to the major currents of modernist and, especially, postmodernist activity in the arts, including the visual arts and cultural theory .
Perloff has done much to promote poetics that are not normally part of the discourse in the United States such as Louis Zukofsky and Brazilian poetry. Her work on contemporary American poetry and in particular poetry associated with the avant-garde (such as Language poetry and the Objectivist poets) has significantly opened up the "Official Verse Culture" to critique and dialogue from outside the classroom and lecture hall: even as poetry in the U.S. today continues its division between categories like "experimental" , "mainstream", and "spoken word".
