Book summary: The Critical Writings of Katherine Mansfield

1987 BY KATHERINE MANSFIELD

Katherine Mansfield was a formidable critic: astute, witty and something more - she had, as Middleton Murry put it, an extraordinary style and critical verve, mastery and 'sureness of touch'. This is the first scholarly edition of her critical writings. A substantial introduction sets the scene for an understanding of Katherine Mansfield's position as a woman writer on the edge of, but never completely accepted by, Bloomsbury; responding to the pressures of the First World War, illness and exile, and attempting to reconcile the facts of life with the truths of fiction. Careful annotation supplies essential information for following the evolution of her ideas - and her art - from 1907 until her death in 1923.
