Katherine Mansfield, France, 1916

Katherine Mansfield, France, 1916

Katherine Mansfield's international impact on literary fiction is profound. Along with Virginia Woolf and others, she founded literary modernism and remains significant for this reason and for the quality of her work. Mansfield mainly wrote in England, but she also spent time living and writing in France. Here she sits in the garden of Villa Pauline in Bandol, France, in 1916. It was here that she began reworking her short story 'The aloe', which was published as 'Prelude' in 1918.
