Three lives by Gertrude Stein ( Book )
135 editions published between 1909 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 3,492 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This edition reprints the text of Stein's three avant-garde novellas of working-class women together with a wide spectrum of thematically arranged historical documents. The accompanying selections address the role and perception of women at the turn of the century; the impact of medical science, philosophy, modern art, and realism on Gertrude Stein as a developing writer; and issues of gender, race, religion, class, and sexual orientation. Excerpts from Stanton, Cooper, Wilder, Freud, James, and Du Bois enhance students' understanding and appreciation of Stein's 1909 literary experiment with character, language, and style."--BOOK JACKET

28 editions published between 1930 and 2000 in English and French and held by 943 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"It seemed lyrical to Miss Stein to name her character Lucy Church for the church at Lucey, [France]. This is the source of many of her names and images--they are puns from French to English. ... The result can be read simply as an account of being in the countryside, or more complexly, as an investigation into the interlocking nature of things, and into the ways that language can be used for description."--Cover
