An influential and epochal feminist text, Kate Millet's "Sexual Politics" has lost none of its impact, anger or relevance (unfortunately). Millet both summarizes and analyzes the feminist movement, focusing on the deeply rooted sexism in a patriarchal culture. She devotes several chapters to literary figures, including Henry Miller, D.H. Lawrence, Jean Genet and Norman Mailer. Indeed, it was the later's essay about her chapter on Lawrence that prompted me to read this. Mailer gets his comeuppance by a woman far more intelligent and indignant than he, so he understandably tried to discredit her essay. Excellent and provocative.
