"A Little Called Pauline" is an excerpt from Gertrude Stein’s 1914 poetry book, Tender Buttons.
In the poem, I notice themes connected to newspapers: printing, typography, and hyperbolic headlines. (Stein's critique of the 1914 media?) In a world full of polarizing information, critically examining the words we consume is still vital, so I hope this project invites viewers to feel curious about language and inspired to dig a little deeper.
