Unpaid Annotation
"For a few years in the 1910s and early 1920s the New Zealand short-story writer Katherine Mansfield was at the heart of the modern movement in literature. Married to the eminent critic and editor John Middleton Mury, she was friends with leading members of the Bloomsbury and Garsington sets such as Virginia Woolf, Ottoline Morrell, Bertrand Russell and Lytton Strachey. She knew D.H. Lawrence, T.S. Eliot, E.M. Forster and Aldous Huxley. She met James Joyce. Artists such as Mark Gertler, Henri Gaudier-Brzeska, Dorothy Brett and Dora Carrington crossed her path. This chronology details her tumultuous and tragic life (she died from tuberculosis aged only thirty-four), and sheds new light on her approach and attitudes to writing."--BOOK JACKET.
