Overview

Three experimental pieces, written between 1909 and 1912, involved such stylistic devices as repeated variations on a limited set of sentences and phrases, and 'word portraits.' Includes, in addition to title piece, 'A Long Gay Book' and 'Many, Many Women.' Will be of special interest to students of modernism, since the problem of representation versus experience that Stein was wrestling with in these works mirrors the ways in which modernism can be viewed as a response to turn-of-the-century literary realism.
