Bliss, And Other Stories, Katherine Mansfield
Katherine Mansfield (1888–1923) is one of the most highly regarded short story writers of the 20th century. A contemporary of James Joyce, Virginia Woolf and D H Lawrence, she played her part in shaping modernism by experimenting with style, subject matter and theme in a body of work that re-defined the genre. As well as short stories she also wrote letters, reviews and journals in a prolific career which was cut short by her untimely death at the age of 34.In 1920 her second collection of short stories, Bliss and Other Stories, was published to critical acclaim, followed by ‘The Daughters of the Late Colonel’ later that year. Publication in 1922, of her third collection, The Garden Party and Other Stories, also received high praise.
