Katherine Mansfield is New Zealand's most celebrated writer, and one of the key figures in the history of the short story in English. This is the first time the stories set in her own country have been brought together and published in the order in which she wrote them. The Mansfield that emerges from this fresh perspective is both familiar and unexpected.

Mansfield's stories about New Zealand (now collected for the for the first time in the order in which she wrote them) are such shimmering, swiftly paced, perfectly controlled evocations of landscape and mood that they often seem to re-create rather than simply describe their chosen moment - Elizabeth Lowry - TLS 16th July 1999

Descrizione libro Oxford Univ Press, Auckland, 1997. Hardcover. Condizione libro: Near Fine. Condizione sovraccoperta: Near Fine. 1st Edition. The book has a very light dusting of spotting on the top page edges and some light tanning to the page edges, which appears to be prevalent with this title. The jacket has very minor dulling down to the spine. Comprising only a small segment of renowned short story writer Katherine Mansfield's work, the New Zealand stories were written within a five year span between 1918 and 1922. However, they were never published as a group until 1974 and have rarely been the focus of sustained analysis. Katherine Dickson's study, a close textual analysis, reveals these stories as proto-postcolonial narrative which reward close scrutiny by the serious scholar. Codice libro della libreria 020171
