Publisher Comments:

The literary theories of American expatriate Gertrude Stein (1874-1946) strongly influenced a generation of young American writers (notably Hemingway), and her ideas about writing still provoke and stimulate.

Although much of her own work embodies innovative experimentation with language and sound, the present volume is fairly conventional in style and quite accessible. Regarded by some critics as a minor masterpiece, Three Lives was Stein's first published book. In it she tells the stories of three working class women — Anna, a conscientious but rigid serving woman; stories, a worldly-wise and sensitive black girl; and Lena, a gentle but feeble-minded maid.

Although these are relatively ordinary women, in Stein's hands their lives and minds take on extraordinary interest. Told in clear, carefully crafted prose, these storeis are not only memorable works in themselves but an excellent entree to Stein's later work.

Synopsis:

In these three stories, Gertrude Stein put into practice certain theories about prose composition that paralleled the ideas expressed in the art of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist painters.

Synopsis:

In her first publication, Stein invests the lives of three average women with extraordinary insights into race, sex, gender, and other feminist issues that were clearly ahead of their time.

Synopsis:

The first of Gertrude Stein's publications, this accessible 1909 volume was an experiemntal work for its time and established the author's reputation as a master of language and a voice for women. In three separate tales, Stein invests the lives of three working class women with extraordinary insights into race, sex, gender, and other feminist issues.

Synopsis:

Clear, carefully crafted stories of 3 women, whose relatively ordinary lives and minds Stein invests with extraordinary interest. Excellent entree to author's later work.
