Autobiographie d'Alice Toklas

République des Lettres

Texte intégral révisé suivi d'une biographie de Gertrude Stein. Gertrude Stein a été la première des grands écrivains de l'Amérique contemporaine. Elle fut la première à s'apercevoir qu'il y avait une Amérique contemporaine, que cette Amérique était différente de l'Europe et différente de l'Amérique d'hier. Elle fut la première à vouloir écrire ce que parlait l'Amérique d'aujourd'hui et à penser ce que penserait l'Amérique de demain. Elle est la première de ces novatrices et ces novateurs qui, à partir de 1900, ont entraîné l'Amérique littéraire et artistique en dehors des chemins frayés du XIXe siècle, de la tradition romantique et postromantique, des survivances puritaines et du ronronnement oratoire hérité du XVIIIe siècle. Elle fut la première à découvrir la phrase américaine et à inventer le paragraphe américain: elle fut la première à imaginer un roman-fleuve et des poèmes magiques dans une Amérique qui oubliait Poe et qui continuait Georges Ohnet. Alice Toklas était la secrétaire et confidente de Gertrude Stein et l'Autobiographie est l'histoire de sa vie. Cette vie s'est déroulée à côté de Gertrude Stein, dans la compagnie et la contemplation de Gertrude Stein. Seule Alice Toklas pouvait parler de Gertrude Stein, car Gertrude Stein elle-même, qui était poète et romancière, ne pouvait pas parler d'elle-même. Chacun son métier. Ce livre est donc l'Autobiographie d'Alice Toklas, et il émane bien de la sensibilité, de la pensée, de la sagesse d'Alice Toklas. Seulement, comme Alice Toklas était très occupée, qu'elle devait s'occuper des chiens, du jardin, des manuscrits, de la cuisine et des mille soins de la vie quotidienne, Gertrude Stein, qui était plus libre et mieux habituée à tenir la plume, a bien voulu rédiger cette Autobiographie de son amie, pour son amie. Voilà comment Gertrude Stein est l'auteur de l'Autobiographie d'Alice Toklas.

Gertrude Stein
This carefully crafted ebook: “THREE LIVES (Modern Classics Series)” is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. Three Lives tells the story of three common women, living in Bridgepoint, a fictional town based on Baltimore. The three stories are independent of each other, but share much more than a same town. The First Story, “The Good Anna” tells the tale of life and death of a housekeeper Anna, and her difficulties with unreliable under servants and "stray dogs and cats". Although her job is hard and often quite dull, Anna remains happy with here green parrot that brings colors to her life. "Melanctha" focuses upon the distinctions and blending of race, sex, gender, and female health. The main character Melanctha, daughter of a black father and mixed-race mother in segregated Bridgepoint, goes throughout the life on a quest for knowledge and power, as she is dissatisfied with her role in the world. “The Gentle Lena” follows the life of Lena, a German girl brought to Bridgepoint by a cousin. Lena begins her life in America as a servant girl, but is eventually married to Herman Kreder, the son of German immigrants. Both Herman and Lena are marked by extraordinary passivity, and the marriage is essentially made in deference to the desires of their elders. Gertrude Stein (1874-1946) was an American novelist, poet, playwright and art collector, best known for Three Lives, The Making of Americans and Tender Buttons. Stein moved to Paris in 1903, and made France her home for the remainder of her life. Picasso and Cubism were an important influence on Stein's writing. Her works are compared to James Joyce's Ulysses and to Marcel Proust's In Search of Lost Time.
