This important collection presents Gertrude Stein for the first time in her brilliant modernity. Ulla E. Dydo''s textual scholarship demonstrates Stein''s constant questioning of convention, and A Stein Reader changes the balance of work in print, concentrating on Stein''s experimental work and including many key works that are virtually unknown or unavailable.

A Stein Reader includes unpublished work, such as the portrait "Article"; shows the astonishing stylistic change in the neglected "A Long Gay Book"; draws attention to the many unknown plays such as "Reread Another;" and offers fascinating portraits of Matisse, Picasso, and Sitwell. Illuminating headnotes bring out connections between pieces and provide invaluable keys to Stein''s motifs and thought patterns.
Gertrude Stein (February 3, 1874 – July 27, 1946) was an American writer, poet, and art collector who spent most of her life in France.
