ABOUT THIS BOOK

Geography and Plays is a collection of Gertrude Stein’s writing from about 1908 to 1920. Originally published in 1922 with an introduction by Sherwood Anderson, it was almost inaccessible for many years. This edition makes it possible for students and other devotees of Stein to see the developing strategies of one of the acknowledged giants of literary modernism, whose pathbreaking departures in literary style have recently been assigned still greater importance in light of new theories about women’s writing. An introduction by Cyrena N. Pondrom provides contemporary readers with a fine orientation to the importance of Stein’s achievement in this early work.
