Geography and Plays is a collection of Gertrude Stein's writing from about 1908 to 1920. Originally published in 1922 with an introduction by Sherwood Anderson, it has been almost inaccessible for many years. This edition makes 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 light of new theories about women's writing. A new introduction by Cyrena N. Pondrom provides contemporary readers with a fine orientation to the importance of Stein's achievement in this early work.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Here is one artist who has been able to accept ridicule, who has even foregone the privilege of writing the Great American Novel, uplifting our English-speaking stage and wearing the bays of the great poets, to go live among the little housekeeping words, the swaggering bullying street-corner words, and all the other forgotten and neglected citizens of the sacred and half-forgotten city."--Sherwood Anderson, from the introduction to the 1922 edition
