Originally published in New York by Randon House, in 1935, in hardcover format.
Here the most famous exponent of subjective realism discusses for Americans the concepts of art which are at the root of her own work. With all the authority of her own seminal influence, she introduces the American reader to the whole field of modern European art, which is the background for his own culture. Ranging widely throughout painting, literature, and music, she describes, in her inimitable style, the things that seem to her important for Gertrude Stein and for America.
Contents: What is English Literature? - Pictures - Plays - The Gradual Making of Americans - Portraits and Repetition - Poetry and Grammar.
Gertrude Stein (1874-1946) was an American-born art collector, critic, and poet who spent most of her life in Paris.
