From one of the modern era's most influential and boldly experimental writers — a generous collection of poems, stories and plays — all dating from 1910–1920. Wide range of the author's styles reveal Stein as philosopher, poet, portraitist, dramatist and short story writer, as the investigator of the nature of language, and much more. Superb sampling of works drew attention to the artistic avant-garde movements of the early 20th century and introduced new directions in experimental writing.
