Abstract: Resituates Katherine Mansfield as an observant diarist, chronicler of her times and erudite reader of English and European literatures. Previously only available as edited excerpts or as largely unedited transcriptions, Katherine Mansfield’s diaries and notebooks have been re-transcribed and minutely edited for the first time, and are presented in this volume with precise historical, cultural and biographical contextual information. The entries show Mansfield’s evolution as a writer as well as the impact of her era on early drafts of her mature writings. This volume also contains fascinating new material never previously published – poem-cycles, letters, Mansfield’s own illustrations, and the last materials she was working on in the final weeks of her life. A detailed index facilitates cross-reading and referencing for scholars and general readers alike.
