More About This Textbook

Overview

"Three Lives" - three short stories by Gertrude Stein - has had a curious history. First published in 1909 by the Grafton Press, this book of short stories has consistently maintained a striking underground reputation. "Three Lives" is an astonishing masterpiece when one considers that it was its author's first book. Reasonably enough, considering Gertrude Stein's subsequent association with painters, the book is imbued with the influence of Cézanne more than with that of any literary forerunner. The subject matter, two servant girls and an unhappy afro-american girl, is similar to the subject matter of the realists, Zola and Flaubert, but so different is the treatment that any question of influence may be immediately dismissed. Nothing in this writing is extraneous: every detail represents the whole and is essential to it. If we cannot look back of Miss Stein and find a literary ancestor, it is easy to look forward: a vast sea of writers seems to be swimming in the inspiration derived from this prose.

    The Author Of-Howl To The Night

    Hello. I am Jade Hoard the author of Howl To The Night. It is basically about girls and a group of boys. They are werewolves. They all meet up one night at a resturant only to see other girls ad boys who have necklaces all the same with white surrounding the outside. In the middle are black claws. Me I have black surrounding the white claws. The other necklace that has black in the middle are known as The Dark. My group is known as The Light. I am living a life as a eighteen year old and my frieds and I are in danger with the Dark. There nickname Dark Wolves. They are after us because we have one of the best hunting grounds and space in the forest.*****************************************************************************
    Now I will let anybody be In the story. Let me know your character and which side you want to be on. The Dark Wolves or mine The Light Wolves. My character is going to be:
    Jade Hoard an 18 year old girl '5"8' dark brown hair and lovely emerald green eyes. Her werewolf is a creamy sugar like with green eyes also.(Hint:The wolves are big as the movie twilight wolves with Bella,Edward and Jake in it.) Tell me your description like I did and your in the story. I need 2 more girls and 3 boys for each side. After I have six characters on both sides and they are in chapter one then in chapter two more people can come in. Thanks and I hope you enjoy the Story.
    -Jade Hoard &hearts
