Walter Benn Michaels. That's an artfully put together work of literary criticism, a fine example of the so-called "New Historicism," which is identified with my alma mater and Kim's Department of English, where Michaels was teaching when he wrote it. Frederic Jameson has an interesting critique of the "slipperiness" of Michaels's argument in his Postmodernism; or, the Cultural Logic of Late Capitalism. Jameson is a 60s-style Marxist, one from whom I learned a great deal, even though I'm far less willing to present myself as engagé.
