Is writing a surface without depth

Gertrude Stein stressed consistently that writing was a surface without depth. Verbal complexity for Stein is the result not of deep, unconscious, symbolic, or otherwise “hidden” meanings but of the “natural” tendency of language to proliferate, refuse control and form, and exceed the intention of a discrete sender (author) or receiver (reader)

The finished statement is never just a completed thing, it has leakage, traces, it is entangled 
in a never ending proliferation of other words and meanings.  I would submit that all
statements, views are no more than theories.
