One of the great cartoons of the 20th century was a photograph with the
caption, "A woman's work is never done." It appeared in the Guardian
(New York), and the photo showed a very small North Vietnamese woman
carrying an AK-47 escorting a very tall and broad-shouldered Air Force
Nancy is certainly correct about no one book (of any kind) is
representative of feminism -- but this photo and caption is as
representative as any other single text.
I suppose an actual photo combined with a caption from another source
would be an example of "found art," which gets us back to Duchamps if
not to Eliot
