Equally wide-ranging are the writers represented - a group that includes Guillaume Apollinaire, Gertrude Stein, Jean Metzinger, Albert Gleizes, Fernand Léger, Francis Picabia, André Salmon, Raymond Duchamp-Villon, Henri Le Fauconnier, and many others. These diverse selections - unabridged and freshly translated - represent a departure from the traditional view of cubism as shaped almost exclusively by Picasso and Braque. Augmented by Antliff and Leighten's insightful commentary on each entry, as well as many of the articles - original illustrations, A Cubism Reader ultimately broadens the established history of the movement by examining itsmonumental contributions from a variety of contemporary perspectives.
