Uncloseting Drama

Yale University Press

This chapter examines the plays of Gertrude Stein, including Byron A Play and A Play Called Not and Now. It focuses on the queer dynamics of Stein's drama, which have been all but ignored by critics. Though the “queerness” of Stein's writing is evident all throughout her corpus, the particular nexus of sex, violence, and dramatic experimentation is one of the most fruitful areas for a queer inquiry of her work.

Keywords:   Gertrude Stein, plays, power, erotic writing, dramatic writing, sex, violence
