The Greeks and Romans recorded many stories of dolphins, but these were thought to be legendary until in 1955 a dolphin came to play with swimmers. Since then much has come to light, for example dolphins have an ear for music, and they willingly help man in his search for food. These and other recent discoveries are described while omitting none of ther earlier accounts

Her stories suggest someone writing in a different era and in a vastly different English. Her language is as transparent as clean glass, yet hovers on the edge of poetry. Although Katherine Mansfield was closely associated with D.H. Lawrence and something of a rival of Virginia Woolf, her stories suggest someone writing in a different era and in a vastly different English. Her language is as transparent as clean glass, yet hovers on the edge of poetry. Her characters are passionate men and women swaddled in English reserve -- and sometimes briefly breaking through. And her genius is to pinpoint those unacknowledged and almost imperceptible moments in which those people's relationships -- with one another and themselves -- change forever
