"Geography and Plays" is a collection of Gertrude Stein's writing from 1910 to 1920. Originally published in 1922 with an introduction by Sherwood Anderson, it has been virtually inaccessible for many years. This new paperback edition aims to make it possible for students and other devotees of Stein to see the developing strategies of one of the acknowledged giants of literary modernism, whose pathbreaking departures in literary style have recently been assigned still greater importance in the light of new theories about women's writing. A new introduction by Cyrena N. Pondrom provides contemporary readers with guidance on the importance of Stein's achievement in this early work.
