The first extensive examination of Stein's notebooks, manuscripts and letters, prepared over a period of twenty years, Gertrude Stein: The Language That Rises asks new questions and explores new ways of reading Stein. This definitive study give us a finely detailed, deeply felt understanding of Stein, the great modernist, throughout one of her most productive periods. From "An Elucidation" in 1923 to Lectures In America in 1934, Ulla E. Dydo examines the process of the making and remaking of Stein's texts as they move from notepad to notebook to manuscript, from an idea to the ultimate refinement of the author's intentions. The result is an unprecedented view of the development of Stein's work, word by word, text by text, and over time.

This book will . . . radically change the way we read Gertrude Stein. It is an extremely scrupulous and brilliantly documented inquiry into the question that has faced every reader of Stein: How does one word lead to the next? I don’t know of any other critical book quite like this one, and I think that it possibly sets a model for genuine literary biography.” Peter Quartermain, author of Disjunctive Poetics: From Gertrude Stein and Louis Zukofsky to Susan Howe
Perhaps the most comprehensive and surely the most interesting study of Stein’s compositional process yet attempted.” Frances Richard, Brooklyn Rail
