Operas & Plays
Drama. This book is a newly available paperback edition of the beautifully produced clothbound edition published by BOA Editions in 1987. This book reproduces "Operas & Plays" as published in the 1932 Plain Edition. "The theater of Gertrude Stein is as radical today as it was seventy years ago. These theatrical exercises developed into a dramaturgy stripped bare of the essentials: plot, character development, scenery, stage directions... Among the modernist writers, Stein remains the last output of industrious textual explication" (James R. Mellow, from the Introduction). "Think they are waiting for the approach of their hope that they will be welcome welcomed by a dog and the hope that they will be very welcome when they come. They will be very welcome when they come. They do delight in being welcome" ("Say It With Flowers"). This book is a necessity for every library, public and private. Among the most important and influential of modern experimental writers of prose and poetry, Gertrude Stein was born in,Allegheny, Pennsylvania in 1874, raised in Oakland, California and lived in France from 1903 until her death in 1946.
