Early life[ edit ] Gertrude Stein's birthplace and childhood home in Allegheny West Stein, the youngest of a family of five children, was born on February 3,in Allegheny, Pennsylvania which merged with Pittsburgh into upper-middle-class Jewish parents, Daniel and Amelia Stein.
German and English were spoken in their home. Accompanied by governesses and tutors, the Steins endeavored to imbue their children with the cultured sensibilities of European history and life.
She would often go on excursions with her brother, Leo, with whom she developed a close relationship. Stein found formal schooling in Oakland unstimulating, but she read often: Three years later, her father died as well. Stein's eldest brother, Michael Stein, then took over the family business holdings and in arranged for Gertrude and another sister, Bertha, to live with their mother's family in Baltimore.
The Cones shared an appreciation for art and conversation about it and modeled a domestic division of labor that Stein would replicate in her relationship with Alice B. With James's supervision, Stein and another student, Leon Mendez Solomons, performed experiments on normal motor automatism, a phenomenon hypothesized to occur in people when their attention is divided between two simultaneous intelligent activities such as writing and speaking.
These experiments yielded examples of writing that appeared to represent " stream of consciousness ", a psychological theory often attributed to James and the style of modernist authors Virginia Woolf and James Joyce. Inbehavioral psychologist B. Skinner interpreted Stein's difficult poem Tender Buttons as an example of normal motor automatism.
Writing for the normal person is too complicated an activity to be indulged in automatically. Bachelor of Arts magna cum laude from Radcliffe in Although Stein professed no interest in either the theory or practice of medicine, she enrolled at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in In her fourth year, Stein failed an important course, lost interest, and left.
Men dominated the medical field, and the inclusion of women in the profession was not unreservedly or unanimously welcomed.
Writing of this period in her life in Things As They AreStein often revealed herself as a depressed young woman dealing with a paternalistic culture, struggling to find her own identity, which she realized could not conform to the conventional female role. Her uncorseted physical appearance and eccentric mode of dress aroused comment and she was described as "Big and floppy and sandaled and not caring a damn".
In the lecture Stein maintained: Sometime in orshe became infatuated with Mary Bookstaver who was involved in a relationship with a medical student, Mabel Haynes. Witnessing the relationship between the two women served for Stein as her "erotic awakening". The unhappy love triangle demoralized Stein, arguably contributing to her decision to abandon her medical studies.
The following year the two relocated to Paris, where Leo hoped to pursue an art career. Here they accumulated the works of art that formed a collection that became renowned for its prescience and historical importance.
The gallery space was furnished with imposing Renaissance -era furniture manufactured in FlorenceItaly. The paintings lined the walls in tiers trailing many feet to the ceiling. Initially illuminated by gaslight, the artwork was later lit by electric light shortly prior to World War I.
Of the art collection at 27 Rue de Fleurus, McBride commented: She recognized them a long way off. The division of the Steins' art collection was described in a letter by Leo: The Picasso landscape is not important in any such sense.
We are, as it seems to me on the whole, both so well off now that we needn't repine. I am willing to leave you the Picasso oeuvre, as you left me the Renoir, and you can have everything except that.Type of Work Romeo and Juliet is a stage tragedy written between and The play centers on a teenage boy and girl who fall in love and marry against the wishes of their parents.

In this country, many feel as though health care is a right of the citizens. I myself struggle with this idea as I do believe we need to address the health care needs of our country but do not feel responsible for those that make poor health care decisions on a daily basis and look for us as a country to care for them.
