Editorial Reviews

Lynne Tillman
Stanzas in Meditation fulfills Stein's great ambition. Published posthumously in 1956, it's an amazing work—a lively, imaginative, modernist epic, with Stein at her playful, philosophical, poetic best as she riffs on the literary and cultural gamut.
—The New York Times Book Review
Catharine R. Stimpson

"Emily Setina and Susannah Hollister have undertaken the demanding, detailed task of preparing a reliable reading text of a grand, difficult text by one of our most important modernist writers. This critical edition will be the canonical version of Stanzas in Meditation."—Catharine R. Stimpson, New York University
Lyn Hejinian

“Thanks to Joan Retallack's compelling introduction and the cogent editing of Susannah Hollister and Emily Setina, Stein's late masterpiece at last exists in its proper luminous clarity. It is wonderful that Stein's celebration of “the commonplace,” that most mysterious and opaque though omnipresent realm, is now available in this elegant and useful edition.”—Lyn Hejinian, author of The Language of Inquiry

Edward Burns

“Meticulously edited and lucidly presented by Susannah Hollister and Emily Setina, this edition of Stanzas in Meditation makes available a central work of literary modernism and sets a standard for future Stein editors.”—Edward Burns, editor of Textual Cultures
