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.
