Stanley Fish (born 1938) is a prominent American literary theorist and legal     
scholar. He was born and raised in Providence, Rhode Island. He is among the     
most important critics of the English poet John Milton in the 20th century, and 
is often associated with post-modernism, at times to his irritation as he       
describes himself as an anti-foundationalist.[1] He is the Davidson-Kahn         
Distinguished University Professor of Humanities and a Professor of Law at       
Florida International University, in Miami, as well as Dean Emeritus of the     
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at the University of Illinois at Chicago,

California, Berkeley, Johns Hopkins University, and Duke University.
