Overview

This edition of the legendary classic of 20th-century prose poetry is the second edition since its original publication in 1914 by Claire Marie (Donald Evans). This new Green Integer edition reveals the original form and structure of Stein's geat work. Stein's writing is as startlingly fresh as if published last month-or tomorrow. Here objects, food, and rooms come into new perspective in Stein's wonderfully original language. Everywhere and everything in Tender Buttons is a de-licious linguistic concoction.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Self-published in 1914, this is one of the volumes that solidified Stein's reputation. Dividing the book into three sections--Objects, Food, and Rooms--Stein attempts to form images using repetition and disjointed words. As the average person will find that it makes no sense at all, Stein's exercise in automatic writing remains in the realm of the literati.
