Tender Buttons: Objects, Food, Rooms


Gertrude Stein’s ground-breaking stream of consciousness work (1914): ‘Tender Buttons: Objects, Food, Rooms’ has been heralded as “a masterpiece of verbal cubism”. Her unique writing style challenges traditional alignments of words addressing instead their underlying sound and rhythm: “By departing from conventional meaning, grammar and syntax, she attempted to capture ‘moments of consciousness’ independent of time and memory.”
