This e-book edition of the complete works of the modernist writer, Katherine Mansfield, who in her short life attained the reputation as one of the most talented writers of the modern short story, is exceptional value. As shown on Amazon's information page, this edition contains not just the complete short stories, but also includes Mansfield's poetry and her non-fiction works, including her wonderful journal where we can experience the author's thoughts and feelings. Katherine Mansfield was an innovative and perceptive writer, whose stream of consciousness style narrative enabled her to show the complexities, eccentricities and vulnerabilities of her characters and of their inner lives. Virginia Woolf, one of the great modernist writers herself, admired and envied Katherine Mansfield's work and admitted in her diaries that she was jealous of Mansfield's writing - the only writing she had ever been jealous of. Like Virginia Woolf, Katherine Mansfield was not so much interested in what happens to her characters, as in how those characters feel and, with the use of intensely lyrical prose, Mansfield's emphasis was, therefore, on constructing her characters' thoughts and their inner lives rather than on plot development, and this style of writing was particularly successful for her short story writing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outsanding Value 6 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase
Aside from the fact that it contains all of Mansfields short stories, the real bonus is the inclusion of her journals. As some of the stories are fictionalised versions of events recorded in the journals then readers are able to gain a fascinating insight into the relationship between her life and art.
