Fredric Jameson sweeps from the Renaissance to "The Wire" High modernism is now as far from us as antiquity was for the Renaissance. Such is the premise of Fredric Jameson s major new work in which modernist works, this time in painting (Rubens) and music (Wagner and Mahler), are pitted against late-modernist ones (in film) as well as a variety of postmodern experiments (from SF to "The Wire," from Eurotrash in opera to Altman and East German literature): all of which attempt, in their different ways, to invent new forms to grasp a specific social totality. Throughout the historical periods, argues Jameson, the question of narrative persists through its multiple formal changes and metamorphoses."
