Gertrude Stein On Punctuation by Kenneth Goldsmith


The chapbook Gertrude Stein on Punctuation (1999) reproduces an excerpt from Stein’s famous lecture “Poetry and Grammar” (1935) in which she provides a rationale for the use of certain forms of punctuation over others. This is followed by a series of three pages which consist solely of the punctuation marks taken from Stein’s essay and arranged by Goldsmith. The free-play of syntax across the white page is visually-pleasing concrete poetry, but also foregrounds that which often goes unnoticed: that punctuation signifies, but is viewed as having low connotative value.
