Gertrude Stein

 

This book is a study of Gertrude Stein the artist, situating her diverse range of writings in an interdisciplinary context with reference to Stein’s prose, poetry and drama and the influences upon her from art, theatre and music.

Description: This book is a study of Gertrude Stein’s diverse and idiosyncratic oeuvre, ranging from established works such as The Autobiography of Alice B. Tolkas to her lesser known pieces for the theatre. Drawing upon feminist, psychoanalytic and performance theory, Nicola Shaughnessy re-evaluates Stein’s prose, poetry and drama. Reference is made to Stein’s previously unpublished material, in particular her notebooks or ‘carnets’ which offer new insights into her life and work. The book explores the importance of autobiography as a pervasive element throughout Stein’s writing. Above all, Nicola Shaughnessy shows how Stein’s work benefits from being situated in an interdisciplinary artistic context with influences from art, theatre and music as well as literature. This book offers new ways of reading and responding to Stein’s work and will be of interest to students and teachers of literature and theatre.
