Stories (Vintage Classics) by Katherine Mansfield

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 peoples relationships -- with one another and themselves -- change forever. This collection includes such masterpieces as Prelude, At the Bay Bliss, The Man Without a Temperament and The Garden Party and has a new introduction by Jeffrey Meyers.
