Review of A Little Called Pauline by Gertrude Stein
A Little Called Pauline by Gertrude Stein (b. February 3, 1874) was offered by Poets.org's Poem-A-Day on February 3, 2013, the anniversary of her birth. Her bio states that Ms. Stein was known for stringing together words more for the appreciation of the sounds they make and associations they evoke rather than for their actual meaning. Her brand of poetry has been compared to Cubism. Knowing this, I would judge that A Little Called Pauline is typical of her work.
