These are Katherine Mansfield's non-fiction collected in one volume for the first time. This volume redefines Katherine Mansfield as a critic, translator and poet. Bringing together all of Mansfield's poetry (some 179 poems and several songs), her literary translations (including letters by Anton Chekhov as well as those of Dostoevsky to his wife), her witty, sometimes scorching, parodies and pastiches, her imaginative aphorisms, her many incisive and heartfelt reviews of the novels of the day, and her essays, including those for the little magazine, Rhythm, this collection attests to the enormous variety and distinctiveness of the non-fiction writing that Mansfield produced, some of it unpublished until this edition. For the first time, Mansfield scholars and devotees can read all of Mansfield's non-fiction work, which expands considerably on previous partial editions of her poems or critical writings. Arranged chronologically, and with perceptive notes and a General Introduction by two leading Mansfield scholars, this is, at last, the Edition that Mansfield deserves. This volume of Mansfield's poetry and critical writing comprises: Book reviews (not collected since 1987 and incomplete); Poetry (not collected since 1988 and incomplete); Translations (not previously collected); Essays (not collected since 1987 and incomplete); Parodies (not previously collected); and, Pastiches (not previously collected). Much of the material has been out of print for decades. It is fully annotated. Some of the material has never been collected or seen before.

MEDIA REVIEWS

[A] hugely impressive achievement, which sheds new light on the verse, as well as the full range of Mansfield's aphoristic, parodic, and journalistic narratives.
-- Modern Literature


It is not possible here, unfortunately, to outline the vast number of literary affiliations, connections, resonances, interests, and passions that emerge from this volume, enlarging our understanding of Mansfield and of the wider literary and historical contexts within which she worked. For Mansfield scholars and for those working in related fields, this volume is quite simply indispensable.
-- Isobel Maddison, The Modern Language Review, Vol. 112, No. 2
