Other Sources

A terrific article on reading Stein by our own Julianna Spahr.
Ulla E. Dydo is a preeminent Stein scholar who has the advantage of being attuned to movements in contemporary American poetry.
Peter Quartermain, poet and literary scholar, brings a participant observer’s eye to Stein’s legacy with his Disjunctive Poetics: from Gertrude Stein and Louis Zukofsky to Susan Howe.
James R. Mellow’s Charmed Circle is a genial, sort of old-timey biography of Stein and her world.

Tip of the iceberg, but hope this helps...feel free to post anything else you find.
