Project Description

Building upon her current research of Gertrude Stein’s 1925 novel The Making of Americans (TMOA), the PI will visit the Gertrude Stein archive at Yale University’s Beinecke Library. She will review the earliest versions of Stein’s writings, including manuscripts, notebooks, letters, speeches, and other materials to analyze Stein’s writing process, her intentions, and her aesthetic as related to the development of TMOA. This research will inform the PI’s guidebook to TMOA, which is currently in the manuscript stages.
