    Dancing Gertrude Stein, Surrounded by Wonders In ‘The World Is Round,’ Girl Decides to Climb Mountain

Stein published The World Is Round in the late 1930s, with playful, wholesome illustrations by Clement Hurd. In language that resembles a high-modernist Shel Silverstein, Stein’s story centers on a girl named Rose, which is something of a Steinian inside-joke: “Rose was her name, and would she have been rose if her name had not been Rose.”
