Stein's Tender Buttons (1914) is subtitled "Objects, Food, Rooms". Had Stein read much Freud by the time this book was published?

In her book Reading Stein: Body, Text, Gnosis (1991), Lisa Ruddick says that by the time Stein was writing The Making of Americans (1925) she was familiar with Freud's idea of the unconscious, and had taken to it, particularly in relation to her idea of "repetition".
