In a German pension by Katherine Mansfield( )

187 editions published between 1901 and 2020 in 7 languages and held by 3,401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Katherine Mansfield's first published collectiohn of stories and sketches is very different in tone from her later work. There is a ... boisterous, malicious quality about these impatient tilts at the German way of life in a Bavarian watering-place. However unworthy the author later found these sketches, such characters as the Frau Oberregieungsrat or the greedy Herr Rat or the snobbish Frau Doktor, have worn well and today enlist the reader's sympathy and laughter as often as does the rather prim narrator"--Publisher's description

Katherine Mansfield ho¨r till va¨rlds­litteraturens sto¨rsta namn i novell­genren. Tidigt pra¨glad av ryske Anton Tjechovs impressionism utvecklade Mansfield en egen modernistisk bera¨t­tarstil som haft stort inflytande pa° all senare novellkonst. Hennes bera¨ttelser a¨r styrda av psykologiska konflikter, gestaltade med en subtilitet och en poetisk skevhet som ger dem ett liv bortom spra°kens konventioner. Katherine Mansfield hette egentligen Kathleen Mansfield Beauchamp (senare Murry), fo¨ddes 1888 i Wellington, Nya Zeeland, och dog 1923 till fo¨ljd av sin lungtuberkulos pa° ett sjukhus na¨ra Fontainebleau, Frankrike. Mansfield la¨mnade hemlandet vid 19 a°rs a°lder och flyttade till Europa. I London etablerade hon sig som fo¨rfattare och blev va¨n med Virginia Woolf och D. H. Lawrence. Ryktet sa¨ger att den senare smittade henne med lungsjukdomen som blev hennes do¨d, vid endast 35 a°rs a°lder. Dockskåpet och andra berättelser är en novellsamling från 1923. [Elib]

Katherine Mansfield, the woman and the writer by Gillian Boddy( Book )

11 editions published between 1900 and 1988 in 3 languages and held by 780 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Katherine Mansfield was not only an extraordinary writer, devoted to her work, she was also a woman of great vivacity and strength, who led a brief but interesting life, from her birth in New Zealand to the literary circles of England and Europe. The leading writers of her age, people like Virginia Woolf and D. H. Lawrence were a constant part of her life. Gillian Boddy has drawn on her years of research to introduce us to a new Katherine Mansfield, not ethereal as has been the myth, but substantial, alive. She has incorporated rarely seen photographs and some unpublished material to present this readable account. -- From publisher's description

The collected letters of Katherine Mansfield by Katherine Mansfield( Book )

in English and held by 680 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

V. 2. Includes her correspondence from early 1918 to the autumn of 1919. Her love for Middleton Murry, her response to the First World War, and her acceptance of the inevitable advance of tuberculosis, are handled with wit and warmth, in a text which has been transcribed afresh from the original letters. Volume 3: Covers the eight months she spent in Italy and the South of France between the English summers of 1919 and 1920. It was a time of intense personal reassessment and distress. Mansfield's relationship with her husband John Middleton Murry was bitterly tested, and most of the letters in this present volume chart that rich and enduring partner'ship through its severest trial. This was a time, too, when Mansfield came to terms with the closing off of possibilities that her illness entailed. Without flamboyance or fuss, she felt it necessary to discard earlier loyalties and even friendships, as she sought for a spiritual standpoint that might turn her illness to less negative ends. As she put it, 'One must be ... continually giving & receiving, and shedding & renewing, & examining & trying to place'. Volume 4. The letters is this volume cover the eighteen months katherine Mansfield spent in England, France, and Switzerland from May 1920 to the end of 1921. It is the period of her finest stories, and when her life took its most decisive turn. There is a subtle but unmistakable change in her expectations, a new 'spiritual' insistence that is both elusive and resolute. From her Chekovian acceptance that 'they are cutting down the cherry trees' she derives a tough existential directness: 'the little boat enters the dark, fearful gulf...Nobody listens. The shadowy figure rows on. One ought to sit still and uncover one's eyes.' There is a determined push - not always successful - towards a necessary honesty, as much as to artistic achievement; while those qualities of her earlier correspondence remain undiminished - the precision and directness, the intelligence and wit, the dark incisiveness as much as sheer fun. Above all, perhaps, these letters comprise a record of very considerable courage, against increasingly adverse odds, as they approach the final years of her life. The fifth and final volume of the Collected Letters of Katherine Mansfield covers the almost thirteen months during which her attention at first was firmly set on a last chance medical cure, then finally on something very different - if death came to seem inevitable, how should one behave in the time that remained, so one could truly say one lived? Mansfield's biographers, like her friends, have wondered at the seemingly extraordinary decision to ditch conventional medicine, for the bizarre choice of Gurdjieff's Institute for the Harmonious Development of Man at Fontainebleau. These letters show the clarity of mind and will that led to that decision, the courage and distress in making it, and the gaiety even once it was made. She went against what her education, her husband, and most of her friends would regard as reasonable, as she opted to spend her last months with Russian émigrés and a strange assortment of Gurdjieff disciples (which she was not). But Fontainebleau give her the space and the incentive to shake free from the intellectualism that she thought the malaise of her time, as she worked at kitchen chores, took in the details of farm life, tried to learn Russian, and attempted to reach total honesty with herself. 'If I were allowed one simple cry to God,' she wrote in one of her last letters, that cry would be I want to be REAL.' -- Publisher
