Summary

This book, based in large part on the author's limited edition previously-published work, A Literary Modernist: Katherine Mansfield and the Art of the Short Story (Kakapo, 2008) but having been fully updated throughout, offers an overview to the short stories of Katherine Mansfield, discussing a wide range of her most famous stories from a number of different perspectives. Clearly categorised into a number of subheadings, the volume elaborates on Mansfield's themes and techniques, thereby guiding the reader, via close textual analysis and the use of multiple differing critical appraisals, to an understanding of the author's modernist techniques. Suitable for the scholar and lay reader alike, it opens a window into the workings of Mansfield's craft in a lucid and direct way.
