About the Author

Katherine Mansfield was born Katherine Beauchamp in Wellington, New Zealand on October 14, 1888, the third daughter of a prominent banker. She attended the Wellington College for Girls before entering Queen's College in London in 1903. Her interest in the cello led to lessons at the Royal Academy mostrar mais of Music, where she became secretly engaged to a young prodigy named Arnold Trowell, who already had a successful concert career. Upon being summoned back to New Zealand by her father in 1906, she decided to abandon music in favor of writing. She soon had three stories published in a Melbourne monthly and gained her father's consent to return to England. Once there, she became depressed when she found that Trowell no longer loved her, and she rushed into a hasty marriage to a young musician, only to leave him a few days later. She had a miscarriage, which marked the beginning of her decline in health. After returning to England in 1910, Katherine Beauchamp published her work under the name Katherine Mansfield. A collection of her stories, "In a German Pension," was published in 1911. A year later, she met John Middleton Murry, who eventually became her second husband when she was finally able to secure a divorce. By the time of this marriage in 1918, Mansfield was found to have tuberculosis. Her ill health, combined with the death of her brother in World War I, turned the focus of her work inward and on her homeland. Her memoirs, collected in a book entitled "Bliss," secured her reputation as a writer, and she followed it up with the equally acclaimed "Garden Party and Other Stories." Her lyrical style and stream of consciousness method placed her along side James Joyce and Virginia Woolf for her strength of characterization and her subtlety of detail. Katherine Mansfield died on January 9, 1923 at the Gurdjieff Institute for the Harmonic Development of Man at Fontainebleau. (Bowker Author Biography) mostrar menos

Noels he llegit tots. He llegit del llibre d'anglès: Prelude, At the Bay i The doll house.
He llegit també. La festa al jardí, Felicitat, La senyoreta Brill, La mosca i Revelacions,
M'ha agradat més que la primera vegada, fa 13 anys.
La traducció en catalana és millor que l'espanyola.
La sessió de posada en comú del llibre ha sigut molt interessant i m'ha fet venir ganes de llegir més contes d'aquesta magnífica escriptora.

J’ai lu un peu de Virginia Woolf ces derniers temps, et j’ai appris qu’elle avait une relation ambiguë au travail de sa contemporaine Katherine Mansfield. J’ai donc écouté avec curiosité cette nouvelle, qui se qualifie aisément de nouvelle psychologique. Ce n’est pas vraiment un genre que j’apprécie particulièrement, mais le style feutré de Katherine Mansfield est agréable à lire et j’ai passé un bon moment en compagnie des personnages qu’elle met en scène avec beaucoup de douceur et de non-dits.… (mais)
