This book lay unread on a shelf for years and years If I had known what treasures it contained it most definitely would not have remained unopened I read it during a particularly busy month of my life so I ve had no time to write a review However I did find time to post update notes as I made my way through the eighty eight stories and they provide some idea of the themes and style of the various collections in this volume I ve included them here instead of a reviewThe first story in this collection of short story collections is called Prelude and at 50 pages is almost a novella I thought at first Mansfield should have continued it but then realised it works perfectly as it is She is good at describing the very imaginative way children experience the world something most of us tend to forget once we reach adulthood How has she retained such clear memoriesThe next story Je Ne Parle Pas Fran ais is a curious one showing Mansfield s idiosyncratic approach to narrative The narrator projects himself as a faithful dog some of the time we see him wag his tail or slump his ears depending on events And the crux of the story is slowly and perfectly revealed Blissreminded me of Virginia Woolf s writing especially in Mrs Dalloway but with an added brittleness We see cracks The Wind Blows and Mr Peacock s Day are like two sides of the same story the one from the pov of a girl attending music lessons the other from the pov of a singing teacher Psychology and Pictures both reveal how good Mansfield is at endings when she chooses to offer them Sun and Moon offer excellent insight into a child s mind The dilemma of The Man Without a Temperament has stayed with me all day Feuille d Album a tiny story but rich like an egg Dill Pickle longer and sharper The Little Governess even longer but oddly neither sharp nor rich Revelations it s as if KM s conscience about her privileged existence is bothering her in this one The Escape sudden shifts in pov make this one very interesting That story marks the end of the first collection in this volume Bliss dated 1920The first story in The Garden Party collection is called At the Bay and at 40 pages long and divided into sections it is almost a novella To my great surprise and pleasure it picks up the story of the characters in the almost novella Prelude that began the first collection I remember wishing I could read about those characters and now I have Both stories are set in Tasmania or New Zealand I thinkAfter At the Bay I skipped forward to the final collection in this volume In a German Pension because it seems to have been written first and I was curious to read Mansfield s first experiments with short stories The thirteen very short tales are all set in Germany almost all are about the clients of a particular boarding house in a spa town where they are all on a cure The odd characters drift in and out of the stories which are mostly narrated by a young English woman with a very satirical voiceBack to the The Garden Party collection the title story examines class differences Mansfield does this from time to time in her stories as if her conscience sometimes needles her though most of the stories in the first collection I read were filled with people who were privileged and had no thought for those who provide their comforts However of the stories in this later collection uestion ineualities in societyThe Dove s Nest collection is dedicated to Walter de la Mare Just as in the earlier collections in this volume it begins with a story about the Burnell family the characters I d enjoyed so much in Prelude and At the Bay K M must have been working up to a novel with this set of characters If she d written it I d have read itThe other five stories in the collection haven t got the same energyIn A Truthful Adventure from the Something Childish collection one of the characters is traveling to the city I live in Nothing unusual about that you might say except that the city is rarely mentioned in literature I remember that Nabokov also has a character who travels here When I read his book I wondered if N had visited the city himself and if he d scratched his name on a monument like another famous author had done Can t imagine KM leaving any graffiti thoughFrom Violet also in the Something Childish collection this interesting observation which gives a flavour of the ironic tone of many of Mansfield s young female narrators There is a very unctuous and irritating proverb to the effect that every cloud has a silver lining What comfort can it be to one steeped in clouds to ponder over the linings and what an unpleasant picture postcard seal it sets upon one s tragedy turning it into a little ha penny monstrosity with a moon in the lefthand corner like a vainglorious threepenny bit Nevertheless like most unctuous things it is true
