Om författaren

Katherine Mansfield was born Katherine Beauchamp in Wellington, New Zealand on October 14, 1888, the third daughter of a prominent banker. She attended the Wellington College for Girls before entering Queen's College in London in 1903. Her interest in the cello led to lessons at the Royal Academy visa mer of Music, where she became secretly engaged to a young prodigy named Arnold Trowell, who already had a successful concert career. Upon being summoned back to New Zealand by her father in 1906, she decided to abandon music in favor of writing. She soon had three stories published in a Melbourne monthly and gained her father's consent to return to England. Once there, she became depressed when she found that Trowell no longer loved her, and she rushed into a hasty marriage to a young musician, only to leave him a few days later. She had a miscarriage, which marked the beginning of her decline in health. After returning to England in 1910, Katherine Beauchamp published her work under the name Katherine Mansfield. A collection of her stories, "In a German Pension," was published in 1911. A year later, she met John Middleton Murry, who eventually became her second husband when she was finally able to secure a divorce. By the time of this marriage in 1918, Mansfield was found to have tuberculosis. Her ill health, combined with the death of her brother in World War I, turned the focus of her work inward and on her homeland. Her memoirs, collected in a book entitled "Bliss," secured her reputation as a writer, and she followed it up with the equally acclaimed "Garden Party and Other Stories." Her lyrical style and stream of consciousness method placed her along side James Joyce and Virginia Woolf for her strength of characterization and her subtlety of detail. Katherine Mansfield died on January 9, 1923 at the Gurdjieff Institute for the Harmonic Development of Man at Fontainebleau. (Bowker Author Biography) visa färre

Recensioner

Katherine Mansfield was born and raised in New Zealand, later moving to London, England. She wrote stories about becoming, about shared or confused identities, or 'secret selves'. This might have risen from her division of self between place of origin (NZ) versus adopted country (GB), or from her apparent bisexuality which she seemed to wrestle with. She wrote about dissociation from that secret self, about women's struggles or complicity with the patriarchy, and about class struggle. A common thread is the idea of disruption or interruption, signifying a consciousness of the secret self that clashes with an unwillingness to engage with it. The last few stories before her death of tuberculosis at age 34 have a related poignancy.

Frau Brechenmacher Attends a Wedding - a wife reflects on what experience tells her is the futility of weddings.

The Woman at the Store - it was the loneliness that did it, and wondering "wot for?"

How Pearl Button Was Kidnapped - a young white girl spends a fun day with some Maori. Adults see it differently.

Millie - natural empathy versus passion of the chase.

Something Childish but Very Natural - romantic dreams meet with reality.

The Little Governess - trials of an attractive young woman travelling alone.

An Indiscreet Journey - I was slow to observe how familiar she is with the little corporal.

The Wind Blows - an experimental tale, in which both we and the characters attempt to catch up, with an ambiguous end.

Prelude - how many women's happiness is one man's happiness worth?

Mr. Reginald Peacock's Day - a man's clash of public and private selves becomes judgement of his wife.

Feuille d'Album* - a man inexperienced with relationships struggles in his first effort.

A Dill Pickle* - differing memories of a shared romantic past.

Je ne parle pas français - love and jealousy, unacknowledged.

Sun and Moon - this is why I'm not a chef.

Bliss - a wife discovers new feelings stirred by a young lady of her acquaintance.

Psychology - romantic tension seeks release.

Pictures - this is why I'm not in show biz.

The Man Without a Temperament - the travails of nursing a loved one.

The Stranger - one in every couple always loves more.

Miss Brill - if all the world's a stage, which role is ours?

The Daughters of the Late Colonel - this response to death is how the idea of ghosts got started.

Life of Ma Parker - an employer who only sees an 'employee'.

Mr. and Mrs. Dove - when love accepts pity in return.

Her First Ball - the clash of reminiscence and anticipation.

Marriage a la Mode* - contrasts of happiness.

At the Bay - the Prelude family demonstrates various losses of potential.

The Voyage - death is always near, however far you may travel.

A Married Man's Story - variations on a poisonous marriage.

The Garden Party - clash of worlds, of life and death.

The Doll's House - the only one to appreciate it as Kezia did.

The Fly - repeated grieving eventually must ease.

A Cup of Tea - when empathy loses its entertainment value.

The Canary - even the thinnest of veils may satisfy.

Noels he llegit tots. He llegit del llibre d'anglès: Prelude, At the Bay i The doll house.
He llegit també. La festa al jardí, Felicitat, La senyoreta Brill, La mosca i Revelacions,
M'ha agradat més que la primera vegada, fa 13 anys.
La traducció en catalana és millor que l'espanyola.
La sessió de posada en comú del llibre ha sigut molt interessant i m'ha fet venir ganes de llegir més contes d'aquesta magnífica escriptora.
