This edition of the legendary classic of 20th-century prose poetry is the second edition since its original publication in 1914 by Claire Marie (Donald Evans). This new Green Integer edition reveals the original form and structure of Stein's geat work. Stein's writing is as startlingly fresh as if published last month--or tomorrow. Here objects, food, and rooms come into new perspective in Stein's wonderfully original language. Everywhere and everything in Tender Buttons is a de-licious linguistic concoction.
