Staff Pick

Stein continues her experiments with a "continuous present" in this classic work written in 1912, emphasizing sounds, rhythms, and repetitions over and against "sense." To live in this state is "to begin again and again," to "use everything." She sums it up best: "The teasing is tender and trying and thoughtful."
Recommended by Jack M., Powell's Books on Hawthorne

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Before becoming the patron of Lost Generation artists, Gertrude Stein established her reputation as an innovative author whose style was closer to painting than literature. Stein's strong influence on 20th-century literature is evident in this 1915 work of highly original prose rendered in thought-provoking experimental techniques.

Book News Annotation:

**** Reprint of the 1914 edition (cited in BCL3) with a new note on the text.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

This 1915 work exhibits the distinct prose style and thought-provoking experimental techniques for which its author is famous. One of Stein's most accessible and influential works.
