about this item

Many of the essays gathered here are revised versions of papers presented in June 2014 at the International Katherine Mansfield Conference held in Paris. Contributors in modernist literature and women’s studies, many experts on the work of modernist writer Katherine Mansfield, explore Mansfield’s literary efforts and travels in France as a single woman during WWI and after WWI. They describe her role in fostering European writers and artists in symbolism, post-impressionism, music, and philosophy, including Beatrice Hastings and poet Francis Carco. Essays explore her literary depictions of France and demonstrate how Mansfield was influenced by the works of Marcel Proust and Colette. The book includes b&w/tinted historical photos and manuscript pages. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
