Journal of Katherine Mansfield 1927
Katherine Beauchamp was born in New Zealand and at the age of 13 was sent to England to school at Queen's College. It was here she truly began her writing career. It is difficult to compile a critical evaluation of Katherine Mansfield's work. Her work seems to be of a finer and purer kind than that of her contemporaries. It is more spontaneous, more vivid, more delicate and more beautiful. Katherine Mansfield responded more completely to life than any other writer and the effect of that more complete response is in her work. This is a collection of her journals with illustrations.
