Tender Buttons PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Tender Buttons free pdf 2011 Reprint of 1914. "Tender Buttons" is the best known of Gertrude Stein's "hermetic" works. It is a small book separated into three sections - Food, Objects and Rooms each containing prose under subtitles. "Tender Buttons" is one of the great Modern experiments in verse. Simultaneously considered to be a masterpiece of verbal Cubism, a modernist triumph, a spectacular failure, a collection of confusing gibberish, and an intentional hoax, the book is perhaps more often written about than actually read. Divided into three sections-"Objects," "Food," and "Rooms"-the book contains a series of descriptions that defy conventional syntax.

About Gertrude Stein

Gertrude Stein was a cultural powerhouse of the Modernist movement in Paris in the early 20th century. Her avant-garde writing style has never been approached for sheer audacity and her book The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas remains a perennial seller to this day. She is also known for her extensive art collection and for fostering the talents of Picasso, Matisse, Hemingway and Joyce. San Francisco artist and illustrator Lisa Congdon works in several mediums, including paper collage, screen-printing, ink, textiles, and paint. She has been featured in Bitch, Adorn, Country Living and ReadyMade Magazines and on numerous art, design and culture blogs. She is the author of the Birch Forest flexi journal and several other Chronicle stationery titles.
