by Gertrude Stein

Tender Buttons is a book written by Gertrude Stein and originally published in 1914 that is made up of multiple poems about the everyday things of life. It is divided into three sections: objects, food and rooms. What gives value to the book is Stein's experimental use of language, giving it great originality.

This is the first work to try to transfer to verbal art the currents of painting that existed at the beginning of the 20th century, which is why it is sometimes called a work of "verbal cubism". The most famous poem is the first: A Carafe, That Is a Blind Glass.

This highly experimental approach has garnered both positive and negative reviews, so there is no consensus, calling it both a masterpiece and a set of nonsense.

The title of the book is two juxtaposed concepts that have a great relationship with each other. Use this technique to name most poems.
