Critical sites about The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas

Subjectivity and the aesthetics of national identity in Gertrude Stein's "The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas."
http://www.findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m0403/is_1_45/ai_54895473
"Stein's adoption of a distinctly plain-spoken American voice in The Autobiography and the mass appeal of the book have defined it as a text that separates Stein's earlier, experimental work from her more 'public' writings that followed. However, important recent criticism that brings The Autobiography back within the fold of Stein's experimental oeuvre fails to address the text's treatment of national identity. While it is clear that Stein invokes an essentialist view of nationality, her repeated destabilization of the essential nature of national identities demonstrates that The Autobiography, as a popular book, remains dedicated to decentralizing and destabilizing the terms we use to define our identities. Most importantly, Stein's discussion of national identity in The Autobiography marks this as a text that extends her continuing engagement with American cultural issues in her work."
