Mr. Rogoff has published five books of poetry, serves as dance critic for The Hopkins Review and The Saratogian, contributes regularly to the esteemed Ballet Review, and lectures at Skidmore College. He has been a fellow at the Yaddo and McDowell Artist colonies.  Much of his work is inspired by ballet, New York City Ballet in particular. His book length lyric poem Enamel Eyes, A Fantasia on Paris, 1870 surveys the impact of the Franco-Prussian War on Paris post the premiere (just weeks before) of the comic ballet Coppélia with all of its fanciful and surreal automaton delights that heralded a new era.
