Kathleen Mansfield Murry n e Beauchamp was a prominent New Zealand modernist writer of short fiction who Verrukking en Kindle - wrote under the pen name of Katherine MansfieldKatherine Mansfield is widely considered one of the best short story writers of her period A number of her works, including Miss Brill , Prelude , The Garden Party , The Doll s House , and later works such as The Fly , are frequently collected in short story anthologies Mansfield also proved ahead of her time in her adoration of Russian playwright and short story writer Anton Chekhov, and incorporated some of his themes and techniques into her writingKatherine Mansfield was part of a new dawn in English literature with T S Eliot, James Joyce and Virginia Woolf She was associated with the brilliant group of writers who made the London of the period the centre of the literary worldNevertheless, Mansfield was a New Zealand writer she could not have written as she did had she not gone to live in England and France, but she could not have done her best work if she had not had firm roots in her native land She used her memories in her writing from the beginning, people, the places, even the colloquial speech of the country form the fabric of much of her best workMansfield s stories were the first of significance in English to be written without a conventional plot Supplanting the strictly structured plots of her predecessors in the genre Edgar Allan Poe, Rudyard Kipling, H G Wells , Mansfield concentrated on one moment, a crisis or a turning point, rather than on a sequence of events The plot is secondary to mood and characters The stories are innovative in many other ways They feature simple things a doll s house or a charwoman Her imagery, frequently from nature, flowers, wind and colours, set the scene with which readers can identify easilyThemes too are universal human isolation, the questioning of traditional roles of men and women in society, the conflict between love and disillusionment, idealism and reality, beauty and ugliness, joy and suffering, and the inevitability of these paradoxes Oblique narration influenced by Chekhov but certainly developed by Mansfield includes the use of symbolism the doll s house lamp, the fly, the pear tree hinting at the hidden layers of meaning Suggestion and implication replace direct detail.

    Oh, what is going to happen now she cried If you re the kind of reader who wants to be told what happens next or, even, what happened before then these stories might not be for you There s almost no history in KM s tales though the pasts of characters may well be important What she captures so vividly is moments sometimes through thoughts, sometimes through glorious images for the dark table seemed to melt into the dusky light and the glass dish and the blue bowl to float in the airOh, what is going to happen now she cried If you re the kind of reader who wants to be told what happens next or, even, what happened before then these stories might not be for you There s almost no history in KM s tales though the pasts of characters may well be important What she captures so vividly is moments sometimes through thoughts, sometimes through glorious images for the dark table seemed to melt into the dusky light and the glass dish and the blue bowl to float in the air Bliss Colours are important a silvery pear tree in the moonlight conflated with a woman s silver dress, purple grapes, green shoots of daffodils, women s flesh emerging out of dark clothes or settings But these are not effete little stories of lovely things they re awash with pain with the distances that open up between people with misunderstandings and lack of comprehension More than the later The Garden Party and Other Stories or, at least, as it exists in my memory , this collection shows KM in crueler, even spiteful mode Pictures , for example, featuring Miss Ada Moss, adrift and penniless or Mr Reginald Peacock s Day where the cruelty implicates the reader The Little Governess even feels at home in our MeToo climate as a woman who may be naive and a bit foolish pays too high a price for her misplaced imprudence, even as it s shaded by class assumptions and fantasy Mansfield s writing is lovely, even thrilling in places that scene in Bliss when Bertha sees her husband in the hall and while the alignments to Woolf are clear, the style is also reminiscent at times of Colette and look forward to Jean Rhys Observant, perceptive, capturing moments of subjectivity and interiority in motion, attentive to gender and gendered mis understandings, sometimes wickedly witty It begins with an incredibly beautiful line Why Must It Always Be Tomato Soup these are little moments of life being lived, not always happily, but captured indelibly

    It is possibly surprising that I had not read any Katherine Mansfield before now, but I am fairly sure that I hadn t I downloaded this collection to my kindle free there are so many amazing free books to be found out there I must say that I always find it quite difficult to review collections of short stories, but anyway here goes.There are fourteen stories in this collection, and while there were a couple I couldn t quite see the point of the majority I found to be wonderful The writing It is possibly surprising that I had not read any Katherine Mansfield before now, but I am fairly sure that I hadn t I downloaded this collection to my kindle free there are so many amazing free books to be found out there I must say that I always find it quite difficult to review collections of short stories, but anyway here goes.There are fourteen stories in this collection, and while there were a couple I couldn t quite see the point of the majority I found to be wonderful The writing is really very beautiful, and the characterisation surprisingly deft considering how short some of these pieces are The stories concern small incidents in the lives of the characters highlighting their disappointments, naiveties and quiet angers Two of my favourite stories were the first story Prelude, and the title story Bliss In Prelude a family move from town to a large house in the country there are four adults and three children, nothing very much happens but the setting and characterisation are just glorious In the title story Bliss a young woman is about to get a rude awakening from her perfect life Then the way Mansfield ends this sharp little piece is just masterly, in complete contrast to the start Although Bertha Young was thirty she still had moments like this when she wanted to run instead of walk, to take dancing steps on and off the pavement, to bowl a hoop, to throw something up in the air and catch it again, or to stand still and laugh at nothing at nothing, simply.What can you do if you are thirty and, turning the corner of your own street, you are overcome, suddenly by a feeling of bliss absolute bliss as though you d suddenly swallowed a bright piece of that late afternoon sun and it burned in your bosom, sending out a little shower of sparks into every particle, into every finger and toe The little governess is another of the stories that will stay with me an innocent young woman journeys by train to her new appointment, and meets a grandfatherly type of man who she naively fails to realise has other interests in her I also rather loved the story Pictures, a sad little tale about a young woman contralto who can t pay her rent and is trying to get a job as a singer or an actress She and others like her dreaming of the big time, the realities of life coming much sharper.This collection has really piqued my interest in Katherine Mansfield so I m sure that I will be readingof her work at some point

    Perhaps I didn t absolutely love or even understand the subtleties of every single story in this collection, but no matter when we click, I feel Katherine Mansfield speaks directly to my soul She certainly speaks to my mercurial self, who knows all too well the extremes of Utter Bliss and of Complete Despair Definitely the kinds of short stories that are worth taking in slowly, one by one, and letting linger as I did, so I m glad I took my time to finish this tiny and beautiful Bloomsbury Cla Perhaps I didn t absolutely love or even understand the subtleties of every single story in this collection, but no matter when we click, I feel Katherine Mansfield speaks directly to my soul She certainly speaks to my mercurial self, who knows all too well the extremes of Utter Bliss and of Complete Despair Definitely the kinds of short stories that are worth taking in slowly, one by one, and letting linger as I did, so I m glad I took my time to finish this tiny and beautiful Bloomsbury Classics publication, one of several I ve managed to collect Now all that remains to do is to read everything she s ever written in her abbreviated life, and everything everyone else has written about her that is worth reading I d put that in the long term projects category One doesn t like to rush such things

    Katherine Mansfield is a capturer of moments The stories in this collection do not always have a plot and some of them seem at first glance vague and insignificant, but they all build up images and impressions so that the meaning is deeply felt The picture on the front cover of this edition is apt a woman putting on an earring in the mirror, her expression distant what is she thinking , a wash of bluey green filling the background.I liked the first story, Prelude, the best A long short sto Katherine Mansfield is a capturer of moments The stories in this collection do not always have a plot and some of them seem at first glance vague and insignificant, but they all build up images and impressions so that the meaning is deeply felt The picture on the front cover of this edition is apt a woman putting on an earring in the mirror, her expression distant what is she thinking , a wash of bluey green filling the background.I liked the first story, Prelude, the best A long short story a novella almost about a New Zealand family moving from the town to the country Mansfield is a adept at writing from a child s point of view without being twee or sentimental not always an easy thing.Some of the stories are quite prudish, which I was surprised about given Mansfield s private life There are a lot of thwarted women and a lot of women punished for being foolish or stepping out of line even if only briefly, even if completely innocently of society s conventions You could say that this is because of the s of the time but remember that Jean Rhys stories of London s seedy demi monde were not far off Perhaps it was a form of protection for herself
