Gertrude Stein’s work <i>Before the Flowers of Friendship Faded Friendship Faded</i> started life as a translation of the poem <i>Enfances</i> by French Surrealist poet, Georges Hugnet. Ever since, literary criticism has emphasised, at many levels, the distance between them. ‘The Flowers of Friendship’ examines recent critical debates on the collaboration between Stein and Hugnet and asks whether there are other ways of thinking about distance and proximity in the case of these two poems. The authors question accepted views on Enfances and Stein’s response to it, opening up the interface between poetics and psychoanalytic theory to explore the collaborative process afresh.
