Read full description of the books:



Cuando el diario de Katherine Mansfield se publicó por primera vez en 1927, Dorothy Parker, que firmó la reseña para The New Yorker, acabó su artículo diciendo: «Lo que leemos es tan íntimo que casi me siento culpable de haber transitado por estas páginas. Es unlibro magnífico, pero creo que solo los grandes y tristes ojos de Katherine hubieran debido leer estas palabras». En efecto, el diario de Katherine Mansfield no es tal; la autora no lo escribió con esta intención, pero su marido, John M. Murry, que además fue su editor, al morir ella, en 1923, se dedicó a rescatar todos los documentos inéditos que Katherine había dejado desde 1914 hasta tres meses antes de su muerte -fragmentos de ficción, pequeñas notas personales, incluso los papeles donde Katherine apuntaba las cuentas domésticas- y construyó con ellos este magnífico testimonio, que muestra las emociones y pensamientos más íntimos de la autora, su manera de trabajar y su amor por la vida. Lleno de agudezas, cargado de ternura y de sentido del humor, este diario es un documento importante para entender el espíritu de las mujeres en el siglo XX. Quizá por eso, Irène Némirovsky, autora de Suite francesa, anotó en su propio diario estas palabras el día antes de ser arrestada: «Estoy rodeada de agujas de pino, sentada encima de mi cárdigan azul en medio de un océano de hojas... En el bolso llevo el segundo volumen de Ana Karenina, el Diario de Katherine Mansfield y una naranja».

Read information about the author

Ebook Diario read Online! Kathleen Mansfield Murry was a prominent New Zealand modernist writer of short fiction who wrote under the pen name of Katherine Mansfield.

Katherine Mansfield is widely considered one of the best short story writers of her period. A number of her works, including "Miss Brill", "Prelude", "The Garden Party", "The Doll's House", and later works such as "The Fly", are frequently collected in short story anthologies. Mansfield also proved ahead of her time in her adoration of Russian playwright and short story writer Anton Chekhov, and incorporated some of his themes and techniques into her writing.

Katherine Mansfield was part of a "new dawn" in English literature with T S Elliot, James Joyce and Virginia Woolf. She was associated with the brilliant group of writers who made the London of the period the centre of the literary world.

Nevertheless, Mansfield was a New Zealand writer - she could not have written as she did had she not gone to live in England and France, but she could not have done her best work if she had not had firm roots in her native land. She used her memories in her writing from the beginning, people, the places, even the colloquial speech of the country form the fabric of much of her best work.

Mansfield's stories were the first of significance in English to be written without a conventional plot. Supplanting the strictly structured plots of her predecessors in the genre (Edgar Allan Poe, Rudyard Kipling, H. G. Wells), Mansfield concentrated on one moment, a crisis or a turning point, rather than on a sequence of events. The plot is secondary to mood and characters. The stories are innovative in many other ways. They feature simple things - a doll's house or a charwoman. Her imagery, frequently from nature, flowers, wind and colours, set the scene with which readers can identify easily.

Themes too are universal: human isolation, the questioning of traditional roles of men and women in society, the conflict between love and disillusionment, idealism and reality, beauty and ugliness, joy and suffering and the inevitabilty of these paradoxes. Oblique narration (influenced by Chekhov but certainly developed by Mansfield) includes the use of symbolism - the doll's house lamp, the fly, the pear tree - hinting at the hidden layers of meaning. Suggestion and implication replace direct detail.
