Katherine Mansfield and the (post)colonial by Janet Wilson( )

8 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 906 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In seeking new possibilities for alignments with, and resolutions to, the contradictory agendas implied by the terms "(post)colonial" and "modernist", the essays in this volume address the clashing perspectives between Mansfield's life in Europe, where her troubled self-designation as the "little colonial" became a fertile source of her distinctive brand of literary modernism, and her ongoing, complex relationship with her New Zealand homeland."--Back cover
Katherine Mansfield and World War One( )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 727 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Like the reclamation of women's war writings that we have already seen in relation to Virginia Woolf and others, Mansfield's literary response to the key political event of her time is fundamental to our understanding of her developing writerly style. It is in her responses to the war that we find a 'political Mansfield', and the articles in this volume provide us with a greater appreciation of Mansfield in her socio-historical context. In offering new readings of Mansfield's explicit and implicit war stories, the contributions to this volume refine and extend our knowledge of particular stories and their genealogy. They illuminate the specific and more general influences of the war on Mansfield's evolving technique and, jointly, they reveal the importance of the war on her literary language, as well as for her own particular brand of modernism. This volume helps develop our ideas of what constitute war writings and, in so doing, expands the scope of Mansfield scholarship and the field of First World War studies."--Back cover
Katherine Mansfield : the early years by Gerri Kimber( )

10 editions published in 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 666 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Focusing on the first 20 years of Katherine Mansfield's life, from her birth in 1888 to her final departure from New Zealand in 1908, this biography reveals the importance of Mansfield's childhood and teenage years to her development as a writer and offers unique insights into her New Zealand stories. Gerri Kimber draws on detailed reminiscences of Mansfield's former school friends and acquaintances, early letters, Mansfield's autograph book, notebooks and family papers as well as on previously unused archive material and photographs. Kimber illuminates Mansfield's home life and school days, her friendships, first infatuations and sexual experimentation both with young men and young women and reveals the effect Mansfield's experiences had on her earliest stories. What emerges is a fascinating picture of a feisty and imaginative young girl who would turn into an expressive, non-conformist adolescent: the unruly Kass Beauchamp who would become Katherine Mansfield, the celebrated modernist writer

Katherine Mansfield and literary modernism by Susan Reid( Book )

13 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Katherine Mansfield's arrival in London in 1908 marked the start of her professional career as a writer and this study marks a revival of her reputation as one of the foremost practitioners of the short story. The international line-up of contributors attests to Mansfield's global appeal. By discussing her fiction in relation to her life, the contributors to this critical work present reinterpretations and readings. Enhanced by new transcriptions of manuscripts and access to her diaries and letters, these readings combine biographical approaches with critical-theoretical ones and focus not only on philosophy and fiction, but class and gender, biography/autobiography. The historical and aesthetic studies of Mansfield's work all take place within a framework of modernist literature, criticism and theory, thereby expanding our understanding of what it means to be a Modernist while allocating Mansfield a firm place in any current study of Modernism."--Publisher's website

"This edition is made up of 217 poems, ordered chronologically, so that the reader can follow Mansfield's development as a poet and her experiments with different forms, as well as tracing the themes of love and death, the natural world and the seasons, childhood and friendship, music and song that preoccupied her throughout her writing life. The comprehensive annotations provide illuminating biographical information as well as explaining the rich contexts of the European poetic tradition, including fin-de-siècle decadence within which Mansfield's artistry is steeped." -- Provided by publisher
Katherine Mansfield and continental Europe : connections and influences by Gerri Kimber( Book )

12 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in English and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Katherine Mansfield and continental Europe offer new interpretations of Katherine Mansfield's work by bringing together recent biographical and critical-theoretical approaches to her life and art. It features chapters on Mansfield's reception in Europe and her own translations of other European writers; new biographical and critical interpretations of her early 'difficult' period in Bavaria and her connections to Poland; connections with other authors both contemporary and historical; notions of identity, the self, and 'home'; and finally a reinterpretation and reassessment of her stories set in Europe. Katherine Mansfield and Continental Europe aims to fill a perceived gap in the market on Mansfield studies and will be of value for students, general readers and scholars of Mansfield alike"--
Katherine Mansfield and psychology( )

6 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Explores the multiple ways in which Mansfield's fiction resonates with the landscapes opened up by psychology and psychoanalysis. In line with the recent surge of critical interest in early psychology, the contributors read Mansfield's work alongside figures like William James and Henri Bergson, opening up new perspectives on affect in her work. While these essays trace strands within the intellectual milieu in which Mansfield came of age, others explore the intricate interplay between Mansfield's fiction and Freudian theory, seeing her work as emblematic of the uncanny doubling of modernist literature and psychoanalysis
The poetry and critical writings of Katherine Mansfield by Katherine Mansfield( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These are Katherine Mansfield's non-fiction collected in one volume for the first time. Just as Mansfield scholars had been frequently frustrated by the lack of a complete edition of her fiction prior to the Kimber/O'Sullivan two volume edition of 2012, the same can be said of Katherine Mansfield's non-fiction. Her book reviews were collected - and subjectively edited - in a small volume edited by J. Middleton Murry in 1930 and subsequently re-edited by Clare Hanson, together with some essays, in The Critical Writings of Katherine Mansfield in 1987. Both are incomplete and now long out of print. Vincent O'Sullivan's excellent selection of her Poems in 1988, nevertheless omitted many pieces, and 25 years on, in the light of new scholarship on Mansfield's life, the poems demand a new edition. In addition, many of Mansfield's translations from the Russian are almost unknown and were never previously collected. The volume also contains material never seen before, including several new poems, a new and complete creative 'impression' from 1911, a newly collected and transcribed translation of Stanislaw Wyspianski's play The Judges, and never-before published translations of Chekhov, Tolstoy and Dostoevsky. This volume of Mansfield's poetry and critical writing comprises: Book reviews (not collected since 1987 and incomplete); Poetry (not collected since 1988 and incomplete); Translations (not previously collected); Essays (not collected since 1987 and incomplete); Parodies (not previously collected); and, Pastiches (not previously collected). Much of the material has been out of print for decades. It is fully annotated. Some of the material has never been collected or seen before

The diaries of Katherine Mansfield : including miscellaneous works by Katherine Mansfield( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Margaret Scott's two-volume edition of the Notebooks published in 1997 is a remarkable achievement, given the difficulty of transcribing Mansfield's notorious handwriting, and all Mansfield scholars remain forever in Scott's debt. However, one recurring criticism is that Mansfield's diary entries and loose papers which comprise the edition are not transcribed in chronological order. As Mansfield frequently re-used notebooks and diaries within a time span of several years, the result in the published Notebooks is that diary entries for a specific year do not necessarily follow sequentially. This edition remaps all the entries in the Notebooks not used in the Collected Fiction volumes, and presents the material in chronological order, with annotations. This edition provides a fascinating, chronological account of Mansfield's life, as she wrote it and Mansfield will be read differently and far more accurately as a result

Katherine Mansfield : the view from France by Gerri Kimber( Book )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This text assesses the reason why Katherine Mansfield's reputation in France has always been greater than in England. It examines the ways in which the French reception of Mansfield has idealised her persona to the extent of crafting a hagiography."--Publisher description

Re-forming world literature : Katherine Mansfield and the modernist short story by Gerri Kimber( Book )

5 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The ground-breaking essays gathered in this volume argue that global paradigms of World Literature, often referencing the major metropolitan centres of cultural and literary production, do not always accommodate voices from the margins and writing within minority genres such as the short story. Katherine Mansfield is a supreme example of a writer who is positioned between a number of different borders and boundaries: between modernism and postcolonialism; between the short story and other genres; between Europe and New Zealand. In pointing to the global production and dissemination of short stories, and in particular the growing reception of Mansfield?s work worldwide since her death in 1923, the volume shows how literary modernism can be read in a myriad of ways in terms of the contemporary category of new World Literature
Katherine Mansfield and Russia by Galya Diment( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Katherine Mansfield's passion for Russian literature and culture is well documented in her letters and notebooks. Anton Chekhov was not just one of her most significant literary influences, but also a mythological presence with whom she mentally communicated every day. The emotional bond became even stronger when she discovered that the two of them shared the same deadly disease. But her fascination with Russia and its culture extended beyond Chekov and included the Ballets Russes and an interest in Russian politics, in part sparked by Maxim Gorky. She also read and assimilated several other Russian writers, including Fyodor Dostoevsky and Marie Bashkirtseff as well as Leo Tolstoy. This volume presents essays that engage with many aspects of Mansfield's response to all things Russian as well as to the Russians she met in England and France. In addition, the volume presents a collection of images of Gurdjieff's Institute at Fontainebleau, several of which have never been seen before
