Ideologies of Theory: Essays 1971-1986


SKU: 816615594 Categories: , ,


In all his essays, Jameson explores theoretical territory then unknown to most American critics, brings back ideas, explains and criticizes them, and does so both inventively and systematically. The ‘system’ he helps to construct is a set of critical attitudes rather than a stale enclosure of interpretive rules, and those attitudes have changed the shape of American thought about literature and culture, not only in the academy but also in the literate press.
