Marie's Read This is short story writing at its best. I read it with delight and absolute awe at the way Me.
Mansfield could describe things: flowers, landscapes, houses in a way that makes them come to life in a way that just blew my mind! But her true talent and real gift was knowing people. Getting into their heads and letting us go there too. We felt what they felt, we see the world as they do, it's an amazing emotional journey.
Some of her short stories are completely fiction Marie's Read This is short story writing at its best. Some of her short stories are completely fictional, some are autobiographical these are not always so apparent , and some of her stories feature characters from earlier stories - I call these serial shorts I'm sure there's a fancy name for them, afraid I don't know it.
She writes from many perspectives: the girlfriend, the husband, the abused child, the sister, the grandmother, the wife, the single woman, the child playing - her talent is unlimited and had she lived longer, she probably would have been one of the great novelist's of the 20th century. But in the short time she was here, she wrote masterpieces and some beautiful poetry included at the end.
Anyone who purports to enjoy great writing would be a fool to miss this.

Katherine Mansfield Quotes - Page 4
She was associated with the brilliant group of writers who made the London of the period the centre of the literary world. Nevertheless, 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 work.

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.
