First published in 1914, Gertrude Stein’s revolutionary poetic
work Tender Buttons is a must-read for every serious lover
of literature. Delighting in the rhythm of words, its first section,
“Objects,” runs playful linguistic circles around teacups,
ribbons, umbrellas, and other quotidian artifacts. Presented
here in an exquisite small package, this new edition of
“Objects” pairs Stein’s avant-garde verse with colorful contemporary
