Mansfield is one of my favourite authors I first discovered a battered paperback pirate edition of Journal of Katherine Mansfield in a second hand shop and read it literally to pieces before it ocurred to me to look for her short stories Her writing makes fine end of the day reading not to sit and read straight through justlikethat but to sip and savour Short story is not usually my favourite genre but then KM s short stories are completely unorthodox She herself said that the she wrote the she became aware that what I am doing has no form Or at least no recognisable codified form for the time At last for the first time the reader has access to all her stories in one place Those who have read her Journal in either the short form or the larger exhaustive Katherine Mansfield Notebooks Complete Edition will recognise jottings that were later expanded and completed Even the fragments of scenes collated and published as The Dove s Nest And Other Stories have a finished air about them some of them shine like jewels One of my favourites is The Canary 1923 a deceptively simple monologue by an older woman There s nothing to it but there s so much in it I wish Penguin had placed the stories and fragments in the order in which they were written or at least published so that it would be easier to see the progression in her craftmanship as a writer As it is the first collection In a German Pension 13 Stories comes at the very end of this edition I guess you could say it provides a stark contrast with her mature work I have to admit I didn t like it much I don t know whether she was consciously trying to be cynical and blas playing to an English audience of the time or whether she simply disliked Germany the Germans and particularly their food and conversational habits and used these stories as an exercise in payback The influence of other authors is pronounced in Pension particularly Chekov whom Mansfield so admired in the final story A Blaze If Elsa wasn t inspired by Professor Sebrekov s wife Elena from Uncle Vanya I d like very much to know where she came from Another German story The Child Who Was Tired resonates heavily with an older French short story the name of its author escapes me also about a child nursemaid who strangles a baby just so she can get some sleepThis is one of those books I will return to again and again Thank you KathyETA The short story that Mansfield copied was by Anton Chekov and one of the English titles for it is Sleepy Mansfield was instrumental in translating many of Chekov s works but in this case admiration spilled over into rank plagiarism Perhaps she knew few people of the day had or would read it Not nice at all Kathy

Last night it was cold and raining with a fierce wind On the train home all I could think about was soup I got to the front door before realising I didn t have my keys Luckily my slightly unorganised brother had left a box of books in my garage I sat down on the broken rocking chair in the damp cobwebby garage and lost myself in these sad stories I really like her writing and found it totally fitting Really good winter reading
