Frederic Jameson

In today's lesson, we started looking at a guy named Frederic Jameson.
He was born on the 14th April 1934.

He is known as an American critic of literacy and marxist political theorist.

Over the past three decades, he has published a wide range of works analyzing literary and cultural texts, while developing his own neo-Marxist theoretical perspectives. 

In addition, Jameson produced many important critiques of opposing theoretical schools and positions. A prolific writer, he has assimilated an astonishing number of theoretical discourses into his project, while intervening in many contemporary debates and analyzing a diversity of cultural texts, ranging from the novel to video, and from fairy tales to postmodernism.
Jameson published many book about cultural logic and politics.
