Three Lives (Modern Classics) by Gertrude Stein ISBN 13: 9780140039542

ISBN 10: 0140039546

Paperback; Harmondsworth: Penguin Putnam~trade, January 25, 1979; ISBN-13: 978-0140039542

Gertrude Stein, as a college student at Radcliffe and a medical student at Johns Hopkins Medical School, was a privileged woman, but she was surrounded by women who were trapped by poverty, class, and race into lives that offered little choice. Her portraits of Anna and Lena are examples of realistic depictions of immigrant women who had no occupational choice but to become domestic workers. This collection of documents from the history of women's suffrage, medical history, modernist art, and literature enables readers to see how radical Stein's subject was.
