Poetry. For those trying to understand the relation between innovative writing and feminism, Kim Rosenfield's GOOD MORNING—MIDNIGHT— is required reading. Rosenfield samples with artful and humorous juxtaposition the languages of science, money, and fashion so as to critique how they define and limit women. Poems such as "Excelsior Reflector" show that innovation is a necessary part of any feminism that matters.
