Volume II, issue 1, February 1973
A Sonatina Followed by Another, by Gertrude Stein; edited by Fran Winant.
The introductory letter "To Our Readers" provides this information: The poem by Gertrude stein, pgs. 5, 6, was edited by Fran Winant. This is what Fran wrote to us about her editing: "My method was to put togetehr the sentences and paragraphs I felt were most revealing of the main ideas in the poem. . .I left out a lot of what I felt was Stein talking to herself, making personal references which had little or no meaning for anyone else. I felt that she was upset by the idea of talking about her lesbianism and tried to hide her subject by talking about irrelevant or obscure things. In orther words, I tried to extract the poem-within-the-poem. . . .
I find that, especially when read out loud, Stein's poetry has a magic quality, a feeling of giving off meaning beyond what words can say. I tried the poem on two audiences, one straight and one gay. The straights sat like sticks as if they didn't hear a word. The gay women laughed, cheered and generally exploded at every line. I feel this poem is part of gay women's culture, that even Stein tried to hide from us, and should be given back to gay women. . "
She Who, poetry by Judy Grahn, Graphics by Nancy Myron. Poems in this dossier include "She Who," "A Geology Lesson," "Slowly: A Plainsong from an Older Woman to a Younger Woman," and "The Woman Whose Head is On Fire."
