'Penguin Student Editions' have been specifically designed for readers who are studying a text in detail. They include a helpful introduction, character sketches, a text summary, a chronology, language notes and activities, and a selection of questions and topics for discussion and analysis.
With her innovative, unsettling way of looking at life and with her musical prose, Katherine Mansfield quietly and radically revolutionized the short-story form. From the edgy dream-like Utopia of 'How Pearl Button was Kidnapped' to the lyrical poignancy of 'The Garden Party', these stories explore the inner lives of their characters and show us in sharp detail their isolation, their suffering, their desires and their fleeting moments of joy.
