The Postmodern Condition: A Report on Knowledge (Theory and History of Literature, Volume 10)
Jean-Francois Lyotard

University Of Minnesota Press, 1984

Many definitions of postmodernism focus on its nature as the aftermath of the modern industrial age when technology developed. This book extends that analysis to postmodernism by looking at the status of science, technology, and the arts, the significance of technocracy, and the way the flow of information is controlled in the Western world.

The Antinomies Of Realism
Fredric Jameson

Verso, 2013

The Antinomies of Realism is a history ofthe nineteenth-century realist novel and its legacy told without a glimmer of nostalgia for artistic achievements that the movement of history makes it impossible to recreate. The works of Zola, Tolstoy, Pérez Galdós, and George Eliot are in the most profound sense inimitable, yet continue to dominate the novel form to this day. Novels to emerge since struggle to reconcile the social conditions of ...
  
  











  



  
The Political Unconscious: Narrative as a Socially Symbolic Act
Fredric Jameson

Cornell University Press, 1982

Fredric Jameson, in The Political Unconscious , opposes the view that literary creation can take place in isolation from its political context. He asserts the priority of the political interpretation of literary texts, claiming it to be at the center of all reading and understanding, not just a supplement or auxiliary to other methods current today. Jameson supports his thesis by looking closely at the nature of interpretation. Our ...

Late Marxism: Adorno, Or, The Persistence of the Dialectic (Radical Thinkers)
Fredric Jameson

Verso, 2007

In the name of an assault on “totalization” and “identity,” a number of contemporary theorists have been busily washing Marxism’s dialectical and utopian projects down the plug-hole of postmodernism and “post-politics.” A case in point is recent interpretation of one of the greatest twentieth-century philosophers, Theodor Adorno. In this powerful book, Fredric Jameson proposes a radically different reading of Adorno’s work, ...

Brecht and Method (Radical Thinkers)
Fredric Jameson

Verso, 2011

The legacy of Bertolt Brecht is much contested, whether by those who wish to forget or to vilify his politics, but his stature as the outstanding political playwright and poet of the twentieth century is unforgettably established in this major critical work.

The Historical Novel
Georg Lukacs

University of Nebraska Press, 1983

Georg Lukács (1885–1971) is now recognized as one of the most innovative and best-informed literary critics of the twentieth century. Trained in the German philosophic tradition of Kant, Hegel, and Marx, he escaped Nazi persecution by fleeing to the Soviet Union in 1933. There he faced a new set of problems: Stalinist dogmatism about literature and literary criticism. Maneuvering between the obstacles of censorship, he wrote and published his ...
  
  











  



  
A Deleuzian Century?
Ian Buchanan, Jerry Aline Flieger, ...

Duke University Press Books, 1999

Michel Foucault’s suggestion that this century would become known as “Deleuzian” was considered by Gilles Deleuze himself to be a joke “meant to make people who like us laugh, and make everyone else livid.” Whether serious or not, Foucault’s prediction has had enough of an impact to raise concern about the potential “deification” of this enormously influential French philosopher. Seeking to counter such tendencies toward ...

The Ancients and the Postmoderns: On the Historicity of Forms
Fredric Jameson

Verso, 2015

In his new masterpiece of cultural analysis, Fredric Jameson offers an idiosyncratic examination of what might be called a provisional or disposable canon – what aesthetic history might look at as we enter an age of the immediate and of the unimaginable overpopulation of art and culture. With examples as far-flung as the great storytelling of the Renaissance painters, Wagner, Hamlet , Mahler’s symphonies, twentieth-century American (Raymond ...

Representing Capital: A Reading Of Volume One
