Fredric Jameson and his Theoretical Framework

Atinder Panday

The present paper is about the notable literary and cultural theorist Fredric Jameson, who has been
contributing continuously in the field of literary theory. This paper presents Jameson’s distinctive vision of
western culture’s relation to political economy. He has meaningfully contributing to the domains of post
structuralism and postmodernism. After 1983, Jameson turned his attention to the culture of late
capitalism. Here, an effort is to understand the notions and concerns of Jameson and the development in
his ideas. His oeuvre can be dividing into three parts. This paper charts his exploration of capitalism in the
mode of economic production, where postmodernity is an unchallenged, a long voyage of capitalism. This
also helps to understand Jameson’s distinctive view of dialectic and its role in understanding certain
concepts in its unfashionable time. It may possibly underscore the major thematic concerns in his oeuvre.
