Gertrude  Stein 


Three  Lives  tells  the  stories  of  three  women  from  the  same  fictitious  town  of 
Bridgeport.  The  first  story  is  of  Anna,  a servant  to  the  wealthy,  or  those  who  seem 
to  be  wealthy.  She  finds  herself  taking  on  "projects"  in  an  effort  to  better  the 
people  around  her.  Story  number  two  is  of  Melanctha,  a mixed-race  character 
who  is  looking  for  ways  to  increase  her  knowledge  and  power  over  others,  but 
mostly  finds  herself  dealing  with  rejection  and  betrayal.  The  final  story  is  of  Lena, 
a German  immigrant  who  leads  a rather  ordinary  life  as  a married  woman.
