Description


Katherine Mansfield had a career-long engagement with the literary marketplace from the age of eighteen. This book examines how she developed as a writer within a range of book and periodical publishing contexts, reconsidering her writing's enactment of a commercially viable modern aesthetic in her experimentation with the short story form.

"This important new study on Katherine Mansfield, although of interest to the widely-read Mansfield scholar, will also have broad appeal to the non-specialist, offering an excellent introduction -- aided by its chronological ordering -- to Mansfield's life and short story output." -- Gerri Kimber, Associate Lecturer, Open University, UK
