Consists of three character studies of women; "The Good Anna"--a kind but domineering German servingwoman; "Melanctha"--an uneducated but sensitive black girl; "The Gentle Lena"--a pathetically feebleminded young German maid.

|display_description||Three Ordinary Lives, Three Extraordinary Pieces of Writing. 'You look ridiculous if you dance, You look ridiculous if you don't dance, So you might as well dance.' In Three Lives, Gertrude Stein tells the story of three common American women. The first one is Anna Federner, a German immigrant with a green parrot that colors her apparently dull serving life. Melanctha, a black woman searching for a meaning in her mixed life, is the protagonist of the second part of the book. Lena, a passive and misunderstood of German descent, is the unsung hero of the third part.|
