Mansfield, Katherine: Something Childish and Other Stories. v1 30 Jan 2017

Katherine Mansfield was born near Wellington, New Zealand, in 1888, the third of four surving daughters of middle class parents. Her only brother was eight years younger. In 1901 she began the first of many relationships with men and women, and made the first of several visits to England and Europe in 1903. During the later visits she met D.H. Lawrence, Bertrand Russell, Lytton Strachey, and Virgina Woolf. In 1918 she was diagnosed with TB, and died near Fontainbleau in France in 1923.

There are longer and more detailed biographies available online through the Katherine Mansfield Society.

Something Childish, and Other Stories was published in 1924, and contains 25 short stories in order of writing from 1908 to 1921. They include The Tiredness of Rosabel, How Pearl Button was Kidnapped, The Journey to Bruges, A Truthful Adventure, New Dresses, The Woman at the Store, Ole Underwood, The Little Girl, Millie, Pension Séguin, Violet, Bains Turcs, Something Childish but Very Natural, An Indiscreet Journey, Spring Pictures, Late at Night, Two Tuppeny Ones Please, The Black Cap, A Suburban Fairy Tale, Carnation, See-Saw, The Flower, The Wrong House, Sixpence, and Poison.

The source text was taken from The New Zealand Electronic Text Collection, and was checked against Collected Stories of Katherine Mansfield, first published by Constable in 1945. I have silently corrected typos, curled quotes, replaced italics and diacritics, used British English, and made changes to spelling and hyphenation using oxforddictionaries.com. Letters and other documents are set out as blockquotes.
