    1 thought on “Selected Writings

    1. From now on, anyone who dismisses Gertrude Stein as a charlatan will have to answer to me and my tiny fists of impotent fury.

    2. NIHILISM, GERTRUDE STEIN, AND MYSELF Two world wars were fought during the first half of the 20th century, making that quindecade unique, so far, in history. Gertrude Stein, an American writer, was born in 1874 and buried in 1946; she wrote in a time like no other time and like no other in that time. A prevailing attitude at the time among writers, artists, and thinkers was one of a nihilistic bent. "Conditions in the social organization" during that time were "so bad" that they believed "that t [...]

    3. I read Melanchta, and mostly skimmed the other items in the collection. Gertrude Stein has a very unique style, and I think that I loved it and was fatigued by it at the same time. Something in her style of prose is akin to poetry, very dense and purposeful; every sentence is beautiful and every repetition is powerful. Yet, the last 30 pages or so were a little hard to get through, as the repetitiveness was starting to wear me down. I'm glad I read Melanchta and I definitely enjoyed it, but I ca [...]

    4. Stylistically, this book really hit home - as someone interested in writing as well as reading, I found myself paying particular attention to the way Stein physically put the words and sentences together. She is a master of her craft, and as with all masters, as you get into the flow of their writing, you find yourself imitating their style, imitating their sentence structure, imitating their voice - without even intending to. This happens with Stein.Before I get into a more content-specific rev [...]

    5. The perfect sampler of Miss Stein's most accessible work, including the effervescent, eminently readable “Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas” in its entirety. All the Stein you will ever need, unless you fall under her spell. Unless you fall under her spell all the Stein you will ever need. All the Stein fall under her spell unless you will ever need. Unless you will ever need under her spell fall the Stein. The Stein under her spell will ever need unless you fall. Peaches.

    6. The 1 star rating is not directed toward Stein, but toward myself. I read this during my sophomore year in college, and felt wholly under prepared for what I found. She is cryptic and profound, and I was absolutely not ready for it.

    7. Required reading for post 1800 Lit Hist Class (UofU) Love Stein! Her ability for word play is intoxicating and addictive. I love the concept of her lit paired with cubism and the idea that the more you look at something, the more you'll find and understand.

    8. I find Stein's writing difficult but ultimately worth the effort. This collection varies from very short pieces(less than a page) to novella length (The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas).

    9. This was the companion book in the class I took on reading and writing from Gertrude's work. I'm fascinated by her changing styles over time and how she played with language.

    10. I did not read all the writing, just the Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas. Not my favorite. But, I'm intrigued to read more about Gertrude Stein, just not more by Gertrude Stein.

    11. This is a great collection of Stein's mature works. I recommend it to anyone interested in sampling her work, or introducing someone to her style of writing.

    12. she has this rhythm and style that is hypnotic, it's stuck in your head for about an hour after you finish reading herry similar to Robert Sylvester Kelly's "trapped in the closet"

    13. Don't be impressed; I didn't really read the whole book this fast. THis was a re-read and I only read the parts I wanted to re-read.

    14. BORING. Can't stop thinking if Gertrude Stein had a blog and posted excerpts from this book on a weekly basis it would be a good hit. I'm just saying.

    15. I'm not certain if Gertrude Stein's writing holds up for me. Maybe it's the extra effort it takes to read, and the fact that it's been a relentless winter. This time I couldn't stick with it.

    16. One can repeat themselves in many different ways. Stein has made a science of doing it.It is important to remember that in her early career no one would publish her so her family published her. That was how she got started.Same with Ginsberg, but I like his poetry.If she can make it, there's hope for everyone (allwriters).
