Gertrude Stein's Prose Is 'A Bedrock Of Modern American Writing'
Adam Gopnik: "It isn't the least of Stein's virtues, or importance, that Hemingway was in many ways the popularizer of a style that she had invented. One could even say, to borrow Picasso's famous disparaging remark about his imitators, that Stein did it first and Hemingway did it pretty. But, prettified or not, Hemingway's style was the most influential in American prose for more than fifty years." The New Yorker 06/24/13
