Gertrude Stein: Tender Buttons: Objects, Food, Rooms (1914–) [EN, PT]

7 February 2014, dusan

A seminal text in the history of poetry and poetics, Tender Buttons was originally published in 1914 and is considered one of the great Modern experiments in verse. At one time or another it has been thought of as a masterpiece of Cubism, a modernist triumph, a spectacular failure, a collection of confusing gibberish, and an intentional hoax. It is the second published work of Stein. (from a BookThug blurb)
