    "Pentru un traducator e un privilegiu sa transpuna în alt vesmânt lingvistic povestirile lui Katherine Mansfield, asa cum pentru un cititor e un privilegiu sa le citeasca. Dupa valurile, mai vechi sau mai noi, de realism - socialist, magic, erotic etc. -, existentialism, structuralism, textualism, postmodernism, dupa avalansa de literatura cu iz de kitsch hollywoodian, debordând de violenta si sexualitate, cât de reconfortanta apare adierea de aer proaspat pe care o degaja povestirile lui Katherine Mansfield!

    Although Katherine Mansfield was born in New Zealand in 1888, she spent much of her short life in England and on the Continent. As she wrote about the privileged worlds she encountered there, her stories quickly attracted literary attention. Prelude was hand-published by Leonard and Virginia Woolf at their Hogarth Press. Readers today still applaud the grace with which Mansfield fuses image, mood and meaning. Here are ten of Katherine Mansfield’s extraordinary tales.

    Katherine Mansfield accomplishes an incredible drama with detailed characterization in "Miss Brill", a story only four pages long, written in the early 1920's. The main character is a lonely spinster, probably an elderly Englishwoman, living in a resort area of France near the seashore, earning enough to support herself by tutoring English children and reading the newspapers to an old invalid whose ability to hear and comprehend are questionable. She sits on a bench at the park and creates fantasy scenarios involving the people around her, enhanced by her eavesdropping skills.
