"Rose is a rose is a rose"

Among the most influential writers of her time, Gertrude Stein created poetryand prose so radically experimental that her work stood out even in an eracharacterized by unconventional sentiments. Stein's avant-garde approachto writing ignored the traditional confinements of grammar and structureand focused instead on sound, rhythm and texture, and the results were asrevolutionary and mesmerizingly brilliant as the post-impressionist paintingsof her friends Picasso and Matisse.

This sampling of Stein's work, selected and read by the author herself,represents a unique opportunity to experience first-hand all the power,resonance, and astounding creativity of one of the twentieth century's mostimportant and memorable artists.

Born in Pennsylvania in 1874, Gertrude Stein attended Radcliffe Collegewhere she studied psychology under the great William James. After leavingAmerica, Stein finally settled in Paris where she began experimenting withwriting techniques and before long became an important literary figure inthe flourishing Parisian art world of the day. Gertrude Stein also helpedlaunch the careers of other artistic giants and influenced and entertainedthe likes of Hemingway, Pound and Fitzgerald in her famous Paris salon.Gertrude Stein died in Neuilly-sur-Seine in 1946.
