More > sometimes viewed as a modern classic experimental novel made up of prose poems. While living in Paris, Gertrude began writing for publication. Her earliest writings were mainly retellings of her college experiences. Mabel Dodge promoted Gertrude's works in the United States. Foreshadowing Gertrude's later critical reception, Mabel wrote in "Speculations": In Gertrude Stein's writing every word lives and, apart from concept, it is so exquisitely rhythmical and cadenced that if we read it aloud and receive it as pure sound, it is like a kind of sensuous music. Just as one may stop, for once, in a way, before a canvas of Picasso, and, letting one's reason sleep for an instant, may exclaim: "It is a fine pattern!"< Less

More > living is presented in three compelling sections—“Objects,” “Food,” and “Rooms”—through which Stein delights in experiments with language. Emphasizing rhythm and sonority over traditional grammar, Stein’s wordplay has garnered praise from readers and critics alike. In “A Piece of Coffee,” for example, Stein plays with conventional language and cubist imagery to produce a stunningly original literary effect: "A single image is not splendor. Dirty is yellow. A sign of more is not mentioned. A piece of coffee is not a detainer. The resemblance to yellow is dirtier and distincter. The clean mixture is whiter and not coal color, never more coal color than altogether." Get Your Copy Now.< Less

More > awesome poems. Plath should have met Dickinson. Dylan Thomas too. Shelley. Poe. Lord Byron. Artaud and Baudelaire. Who can forget Hart Crane? Versus Eliot. John Berryman and Robert Lowell, who knew they joined these ranks? And of course, Celan. Whitman, whose “right hand points to landscapes of continents, and a plain public road…. Perhaps it is everywhere on water and on land.” Together they would write great things, Plath thinks out loud, to no one in particular. She has brought her pen to paper. There is madness in the method, and sometimes a little bit or a whole lot of genius too.< Less

Michael Brenner, American sculptor, confidant of Gertrude Stein and her Parisian circle, sometime American dealer for Matisse, Picasso, Juan Gris and others, publisher of Stein’s earliest... More > writing, is one of the great twentieth Century artists who fell, for uncertain reasons, through the cracks of art history. In this book his sketches suggest his sculptural goals and, perhaps, provide insight to the man himself. Joseph Brenner, chemist, writer, poet and philosopher, the son and alter ego of the artist poetically defines the problem of knowing another even when closely and patrimoniously joined. His poetry reflects his view of the world as a consequence of life’s realities. We find here that the artefacts of individuals can lead only to incomplete knowledge of a person. Yet, is it not through artefacts that we claim to know civilizations?< Less
