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.

Stories by Katherine Mansfield ( Book )
1 edition published in 1984 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
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
