    I was going through my books, almost forgotten now than I am cheating on them with my kindle not so often, mind you , and I found an old favorite that I read many years ago I enjoyed so much these short stories, I had to include The Collected Stories of Katherine Mansfield here When you read her marvelous stories, you travel throughout Europe and meet common or peculiar people Overall, their reading is a timeless experience Mansfield had the talent to write apparently si

    I love these short stories so much Of course, the one is better than another but they re great The way she makes a short story feel as a full novel, that s masterful You get the feeling they are complete, that nothing is missing They are a full grown entity on theirselves The way she descripes what happens or often, what things look like, what people hear or see, how things are, what people think it s so precise and accurate Her stories are like little jewels wrapped in silk

    This book lay unread on a shelf for years and years If I had known what treasures it contained, it most definitely would not have remained unopened I read it during a particularly busy month of my life so I ve had no time to write a review However, I did find time to post update notes as I made my way through the eighty eight stories, and they provide some idea of the themes and style of the various collections in this volume I ve included them here instead of a review.The first

    Last night it was cold and raining with a fierce wind On the train home all I could think about was soup I got to the front door before realising I didn t have my keys Luckily my slightly unorganised brother had left a box of books in my garage I sat down on the broken rocking chair in the damp, cobwebby garage and lost myself in these sad stories I really like her writing and found it totally fitting Really good winter reading.

    This will not be a terribly thoughtful review, just an expression of excitement I don t know how I got this far in my life without anybody telling me what a wonderful writer Katherine Mansfield was She was a master of the modern short story When I consider most of the 20C short story collections I ve read, I think that Mansfield got there first, and did it better And there was a terrible moment when I saw why Virginia Woolf felt so threatened by her, because, if I d read the book with n

    atharine Mansfield s opalescent prose, like the diaphanous glimmer of pale winter sunshine on the early morning frost, echoes and reverberates across her stories, suffusing it with a kind of sad, somnolent atmosphere, snapshots into the various facets of human behaviour, although the primary driving force behind Mansfield s portraits is sympathy sympathy for the vain and vapid yet endearing Beryl or the impoverished Kelvey family in The Doll s House or the timid and timorous Reginald in th

    Mansfield is one of my favourite authors I first discovered a battered paperback pirate edition of Journal of Katherine Mansfield in a second hand shop, and read it literally to pieces before it ocurred to me to look for her short stories Her writing makes fine end of the day reading not to sit and read straight through, justlikethat, but to sip and savour Short story is not usually my favourite genre, but then KM s short stories are completely unorthodox She herself said that theshe Mansfield


  8. Rachel M Rachel M says:

    Mansfield glimmers and sparkles like a Monet painting, and prismatically collects poignant little images and pieces of life Her short stories thrill me, and whenever I need a new taste of life, I seek her out Some of her images have captured me for years, and have become private jokes When the woman meets a man she once loved in Dill Pickle and the tiger which had slumbered peacefully roused and woke himself and the girl in Garden Party, whose entire life of luxury is shattered when she co Mansfiel

    These stories were written around the time of WW1 and yet they are so fresh and the acute observations of human interaction resonate 100 years on I particularly enjoyed the stories set in New Zealand a window on a genteel life not quite English This whole collection is just a feast.
