Product Description

Contains all of Mansfield's published short stories from different collections, including The Garden Party and In a German PensionOne of the key authors of the Modernist movementBeautifully packagedIncludes pictures and an extensive section on Mansfield's life and worksBorn and raised in New Zealand, Katherine Mansfield (1888-1923) became a major figure of the Modernist movement before tragically dying at the age of thirty-four.When her wealthy family prepares to host a lavish summer party, the young, hitherto sheltered Laura Sheridan suddenly feels a kinship with the staff and the helpers hired to set up the venue for the festivities. As she learns of the death of one of their working-class neighbours, this burgeoning sense of class consciousness is heightened by a realization of her own mortality. Published in 1922, at the height of literary modernism, 'The Garden Party' is now considered one of the key texts of that movement. This volume, which also includes a wide selection of Katherine Mansfield's other short stories, is an invaluable resource for anyone wishing to discover one of the early twentieth century's finest writers.Published at the height of literary modernism, 'The Garden Party' is now considered one of the key texts of that movement.
