A Gertrude Stein Companion: Content with the Example

Synopsis

"Kellner offers a group of essays on Stein by some recent authorities, such as Marianne DeKoven, Ulla Dydo, Majorie Perloff. A section of writings about Stein includes poems by Mina Loy, Vassar Miller, and others. The most valuable section is the 156-page biographical dictionary, a bio-sketch listing most, if not all, of the people mentioned in Stein's writings, including published letters; it is a godsend to initiates needing landmarks and to aficionados wanting quick review for accuracy of reference. A collection, Gertrude Stein's ABC, ' forms a handy encapsulated survey of her pronouncements from a wide range of her writings. . . . No book on the market is even remotely like it. It stands alone in its simplicity, range, and helpfulness." Choice
