Katherine Mansfield and Elizabeth Von Arnim (Katherine Mansfield Studies) (Paperback)
By bringing the work of Mansfield and von Arnim together - including on matters of artistry, on mourning, on gardens, on female resistance - this book establishes shared preoccupations in ways that refine and extend our knowledge of writing in the period.
