    Description
    Katherine Mansfield redefined modern short fiction with her brilliant and sharply realised portrayals of human behaviour.

    In the title story, we meet Bertha, a young married woman, who experiences a blissful sexual awakening, only to be cruelly disillusioned. 'Prelude' reveals the tensions at the heart of a seemingly united family. In 'The Little Governess', an emotionally immature woman allows childish fantasy to obscure her judgment, placing her in danger.

    Cynical and self-loathing, the voyeuristic writer in 'Je Ne Parle Pas Francais' delights in the tragic outcome of an elopement. In these fourteen stories the characters reveal - through their inner thoughts and conflicts - the universal struggle of human beings to fulfil their expectations.
