Abstract

Characterizing, in turn, Gertrude Stein's loose relations with her American literary predecessor, this essay finds in Four in America evidence that Stein constructed a "queer solidarity" with James's earlier example. "Rereading Gertrude Stein Rereading Henry James (After a Fashion)" proposes that Stein's interested reading of "general" James's life in works looks to both his gender-crossing and his literary aspirations to--and refusals of--popularity.
