Thread: A rose is a rose is a rose is a rose, yes, but where is that rose?

    Question A rose is a rose is a rose is a rose, yes, but where is that rose?

    Hello folks! I wanted to use the poem "Sacred Emily", by Gertrude Stein, for a presentation but for some reason it's impossible to find it on the web. It can't be the copyright, or can it? It was published in 1913, and since the public-domain rule applies to works from 1923 onwards, I thought I'd have no problem finding the poem. Could you help me up by posting it, or could you at least explain to me why it's not yet public domain? Thanks in advance.

    I can't find it either but there's a little bit of the poem on this website:

    But thanks for posting b/c I was thinking about that line recently and was wondering where it came from.
    All the world's a stage,
    And all the men and women merely players:
    They have their exits and their entrances;
    And one man in his time plays many parts,
    His acts being seven ages.
    ~ William Shakespeare
