Series:

Linda Watts

Rapture Untold: Gender, Mysticism, and the 'Moment of Recognition' in Works by Gertrude Stein analyzes patterns within Stein's language, revealing the nature and origin of religious ideas in her work, particularly those texts written during the 1920s. By viewing Stein's texts in light of recent feminist criticism, theories of gender and reading, and Stein's influence on the French feminists and Language poets, it may be possible to re-envision the process of reading Gertrude Stein.
