nonsense We irmly held with the self BDSM fashioned chains of slavery Throughout the collection she is witty passionate and acerbic at times For example these are her thoughts on French cuisine How much better than these thrifty French whoselower gardens are nothing but potential salad bowls There s not a leaf in France that you can t aire une infusion avec not a blade that isn t bon pour la cuisine It was interesting to read her bon pour la cuisine It was interesting to read her on literature She was a great reader She also personally knew a lot of amous writers For example she was a The Perfect Duet friend of DH Lawrence and the character of Gudrun in Lawrence s Women in Love a book which I really disliked was supposedly modelled after MansfieldMansfield was also very honest she was about her dislikeor various writers and their works Take or example what she said about George Bernard Shaw There s no getting over it he s a kind of concierge in the house of literature sits in a glass case sees everything knows everything examines the letters cleans the stairs but has no part in the life that is going on ouchShe also gives some advice to those people who want to read James Joyce s Ulysses About Joyce Don t read it unless you are going to really worry about it It s no joke It s earfully difficult and obscure and one needs to have a really vivid memory of the Odyssey and of English literature to make it out at all It is wheels within wheels within wheels A very enjoyable read I didn t really know too much about Katherine Mansfield until earlier this year when I noticed that her name kept cropping up in books I was reading Then a book group that I participate in picked the book Mansfield by CK Stead which is a ictionalised account of Katherine s life to read one month I wasn t entirely sure about that book please see my post HERE but it is only since reading the Letters and Journals that book please see my post HERE but it is only since reading the Letters and Journals that ew pieces have slotted into place Katherine Mansfield was originally Kasihku Abadi from New Zealand but spent a lot of her time in England and France where sheelt that she completed all of her best writing She became Ritchie County in history and romance famous mainlyor her short stories but also or her riendships with other literary persons such as DH Lawrence and Virginia Woolf the latter being responsible Savage Salvation for publishing some of her work She contracted tuberculosis which plagued her and left her bed ridden at times and led to her death at the untimely age of 34Unfortunately I cannot really comment on Mansfield s shortiction haven t not read any of it at the moment but I plan to change this very soon From her letters to her second husband Murry and her journal entries she comes across as a bright vivacious and entertaining person with a beautifully descriptive way with language even in her own private words I particularly love the poem she wrote about her beloved brother Leslie Chummie Beauchamp after he was killed in the war Japan, France, and East-West Aesthetics fighting in France The ending lines are particularly poignantBy the remembered stream my brother standsWaitingor me with berries in his hands These are my body Sister take and eat I think Katherine was an incredibly complex yet interesting person on the whole She was clearly passionate about the people she loved but appeared to be slightly lighty and could switch loyalties as she chose She separated rom Murry a ew times although he certainly was the love of her life and had some brief affairs which she seemed to plunge into eet Freaky Facts about Spiders first I loved reading about herriendship with DH Lawrence who used Katherine as his inspiration O Doido e a Morte for Gudrun in his novel Women In Love hisiery personality and tempestuous partnership with his wife was ascinating to read about Although I did enjoy the writings of Katherine Mansfield I probably wouldn t read this book again in parts it was airly disjointed and difficult to take in although I appreciate that sometimes it s incredibly difficult to place.
