Beschreibung

A reinterpretation of Katherine Mansfield's work that expands our understanding of her place in Modernism.

This collection of wide-ranging and stimulating essays attests to the renewed and burgeoning interest in the work of Katherine Mansfield... the sophisticated and innovative analyses offered in this collection stand as a fitting tribute to a writer who herself was intent on exploring 'what lies beneath the rich strange surfaces'. This collection not only sheds a new light on a writer frequently sidelined in critical work in modernist studies, but importantly opens a clear pathway for further re-evaluation of Mansfield's role in the production of British modernism and our understandings of its many complexities.
