Reseña del editor:

"Three Lives" is a series of novellas, three independent stories set in the fictional town of Bridgepoint. The first story is that of "The Good Anna", about Anna Federner, a servant of "solid lower middle-class south german stock." The second story is that of "Melanctha", who is the daughter of a black father and mixed-race mother. The third story is that of "The Gentle Lena", which follows the life and death of the titular Lena, a German girl brought to Bridgepoint by an aunt. To this is added "Tender Buttons", which is Stein's most famous work of hermetic poetry. Gertrude Stein (1874–1946) was an American-Jewish writer, poet and art collector who spent most of her life in France. While living in Paris, Gertrude began writing for publication. Her earliest writings were mainly retellings of her college experiences. Her first critically acclaimed publication was Three Lives. Sherwood Anderson in his public introduction to Stein's 1922 publication of Geography and Plays wrote: “For me the work of Gertrude Stein consists in a rebuilding, an entirely new recasting of life, in the city of words. Here is one artist who has been able to accept ridicule, who has even forgone the privilege of writing the great American novel, uplifting our English speaking stage, and wearing the bays of the great poets to go live among the little housekeeping words, the swaggering bullying street-corner words, the honest working, money saving words and all the other forgotten and neglected citizens of the sacred and half forgotten city.

Biografía del autor:

Gertrude Stein, as a college student at Radcliffe and a medical student at Johns Hopkins Medical School, was a privileged woman, but she was surrounded by women who were trapped by poverty, class, and race into lives that offered little choice. Her portraits of Anna and Lena are examples of realistic depictions of immigrant women who had no occupational choice but to become domestic workers. This collection of documents from the history of women's suffrage, medical history, modernist art, and literature enables readers to see how radical Stein's subject was. Three Lives consists of three character studies of women; "The Good Anna"--a kind but domineering German servingwoman; "Melanctha"--an uneducated but sensitive black girl; "The Gentle Lena"--a pathetically feebleminded young German maid. Stein published 26 books starting with this collection of three stories in 1909. This is her first book and she self published only 500 hard copies. She had to fight with the publisher to get it published her way. He wanted to make it more conventional. It was not written as a novel aimed at wide popular sales. She was seeking a smaller and a more critical audience. When it was written, she had left Baltimore and was living in Paris on money inherited from her father. She had the luxury of being able to do whatever she wanted. As a result, she bought paintings and wrote experimental fiction.

Descripción Penguin Putnam Inc, United States, 2003. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. 170 x 104 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Three LivesThree short stories comprise Gertrude Stein s first significant work, each a psychological portrait of a different woman. The Good Anna is a kindly but domineering German servant. The Gentle Lena apathetically endures her miserable life until she dies in childbirth. Melanctha is a young Black woman learning about sexuality and love. Different as they may be, all three women are bound by poverty--and all three face the restrictions of class, race, and sex with resignation. Tender Buttons Stein spoke of maintaining a continuous present, comprised of moments of consciousness, independent of time and memory. Nowhere is this more clear than in her prose poems Tender Buttons. Their repetitive sentences, juxtaposition of sounds, and simple language connote this continuous presence. To live in this state is to begin again and again, to use everything. Each of the three sections, Objects, Food, and Rooms, employs both this repetition and disjointed words to build images. Prose poetry at its most abstract expression, Tender Buttons is to writing.what cubism is to art. (W.G. Rogers). Nº de ref. de la librería AAS9780451528728
