Linocut print of Katherine Mansfield by Paul Peter Piech.

Katherine Mansfield was a prominent New Zealand modernist short story writer and poet, who later settled in England. From her early publications in literary magazines to her five volumes of published stories Mansfield was recognized as innovative and accessible, and one of the pioneers of the avant-garde in the creation of the short story. The death of her young brother, Leslie, in the First World War devastated her and she found solace in remembering the country of their childhood. These remembrances were transformed into some of her finest writing.
