The Edinburgh edition of the collected fiction of Katherine Mansfield. Volume 2 Fiction, 1916-1922

by Katherine Mansfield | 01 October 2012
Synopsis
These two volumes collect together 215 of Mansfield's stories and expand considerably upon the largest previous single collected edition of 85 stories. They include Mansfield's best-loved stories, stories uncollected, unpublished or left incomplete during her lifetime, the full text of The Aloe, from which Mansfield shaped her ground-breaking work Prelude, and her own manuscript versions of several stories later 'edited' by her husband, John Middleton Murry. The volumes are arranged in chronological order, so that readers can trace Mansfield's progress as a creative writer, month-by-month, from her first schoolgirl story in 1898 to her last completed story in July 1922. Mansfield will be read differently, and more accurately, as a result of this edition. The annotations and their cross-referencing to her letters and notebooks deepen what we know of the context and genesis of her fiction. This edition is testament to Mansfield's importance among twentieth century English-language writers and to her rare and original handling of the short story form. Key Features: Brings together for the first time all of Mansfield's extant fiction Refocuses critical attention on one of the most influential exponents of modernist fiction The essential Mansfield text for individual scholars working on Mansfield studies, as well as those with a more general interest in Mansfield the writer Redefines Mansfield as a writer for the next generation The Edinburgh Edition of the Collected Works of Katherine Mansfield, Volumes 1-4
