Product Details


“Jameson’s little book on Wyndham Lewis is an important and in many ways brilliant work, as much for its treatment of Lewis himself as for its two other important contributions: to an understanding of the ideology of modernism, and to an understanding of a socio-political-psychoanlaytic theory of criticism … Jameson is sensitive both to detail and to the larger intellectual and political issues raised by a writer like Lewis … He provides a serious, challenging, and extremely intelligent alternative to the reigning ahistorical formalist criticism.”—Edward Said

“A highly original study on the novels of Wyndham Lewis … The book is supremely important as a contribution to Marxist criticism especially. It is ironic that it took a critic whose ideological position was so opposed to his subject to offer the best assessment of the ideological and literary bases of Lewis’s creativity … This is an outstanding contribution to our understanding of postmodernism.”—Hayden White
