Tender Buttons: Illustrated (Paperback)

Tender Buttons: Illustrated Cover Image
Special Order


Tender Buttons is a 1914 book by American writer Gertrude Stein consisting of three sections titled "Objects", "Food", and "Rooms". While the short book consists of multiple poems covering the everyday mundane, Stein's experimental use of language renders the poems unorthodox and their subjects unfamiliar.Stein began composition of the book in 1912 with multiple short prose poems in an effort to create a word relationship between the word and the things seen using a "realist" perspective. She then published it in three sections as her second book in 1914.
