Abstract: As it revisits Gertrude Stein’s relationship with Alice B. Toklas – lifetime companion, collaborator, and lover – the paper shows how Stein’s writing is at the forefront of Modernism’s poetic innovation by dismantling grammar and syntax, calling into question the referentiality of language, and dealing with words as if they were sensuous objects. It concludes that Stein’s creative writing is as erotic as her love life.
Ao mesmo tempo que revisita a relação entre Gertrude Stein e Alice B. Toklas – compa-nheira, colaboradora e amante de toda uma vida – o artigo mostra como Stein está na vanguarda das inovações poéticas do Modernismo ao subverter a gramática e a sintaxe, ao pôr em questão a referen-cialidade da língua e ao lidar com as palavras como se elas fossem objectos sensuais. Conclui-se que a escrita criativa de Stein é tão erótica como a sua vida amorosa.
