Translating Back: Re-embodying Gertrude Stein’s “A Man”

Abstract [en]

Gertrude Stein’s early word portraits often seem opaque, leaving few representational traces. One of her first portraits was “A Man,” in which she tried to map the bottom nature of one of her friends, the Swedish-American sculptor David Edstrom. This portrait has been little studied, because few, if any, readers have found the key to interpret it. The purpose of this study is to unlock, perhaps counter to Stein’s aims, the code to its meaning through a process of re-embodiment. By filtering the text through Edstrom’s biography a new perspective opens up, which also sheds light on Stein’s working method.
