About Gertrude

Gertrude Stein was an American novelist, poet, playwright, and art collector. Born in the Allegheny West neighborhood of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and raised in Oakland, California, Stein later moved to Paris. While living in Paris, Stein began submitting her writing for publication. Her earliest writings were mainly retellings of her college experiences. In addition, she wrote the first critical analysis of Stein’s writing to appear in America, in “Speculations, or Post-Impressionists in Prose”, published in a special March 1913 publication of Arts and Decoration.

In October 1934, Stein arrived in America after a 30-year absence. Gertrude completed Q.E.D. (Quod Erat Demonstrandum) on October 24, 1903. One of the earliest coming out stories,it is about a romantic affair involving Stein and her friends Mabel Haynes, Grace Lounsbury and Mary Bookstaver, and occurred between 1897 and 1901 while she was studying at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore. This story is discussed more completely later in this article in the section on her lesbian relationships.
