This book offers a bold critical method for reading Gertrude Stein`s work on its own terms by forgoing conventional explanation and adopting Stein`s radical approach to meaning and knowledge. Inspired by the immanence of landscape, both of Provence where she travelled in the 1920s and the spatial relations of landscape painting, Stein presents a new model of meaning whereby making sense is an activity distributed in a text and across successive texts. From love poetry, to plays and portraiture, Linda Voris offers close readings of Stein`s most anthologized and less known writing in a case study of a new method of interpretation. By practicing Stein`s innovative means of making sense, Voris reveals the excitement of her discoveries and the startling implications for knowledge, identity, and intimacy.
