Tender Buttons: Objects, Food, Rooms Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

2011 Reprint of 1914. Tender Buttons is the best known of Gertrude Stein's hermetic works. It is a small book separated into three sections - Food, Objects and Rooms each containing prose under subtitles. Tender Buttons is one of the great Modern experiments in verse. Simultaneously considered to be a masterpiece of verbal Cubism, a modernist triumph, a spectacular failure, a collection of confusing gibberish, and an intentional hoax, the book is perhaps more often written about than actually read. Divided into three sections-Objects, Food, and Rooms-the book contains a series of descriptions that defy conventional syntax.
