Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

Provides new reflections on literary influence using Katherine Mansfield as a case study. Katherine Mansfield and Literary Influence identifies Mansfield's involvement in six modes of literary influence - Ambivalence, Exchange, Identification, Imitation, Enchantment and Legacy. In so doing, it revisits key issues in Mansfield studies, including her relationships with Virginia Woolf, John Middleton Murry and S. S. Koteliansky, as well as the famous plagiarism case regarding Anton Chekhov. It also charts new territories for exploration, expanding the terrain of Mansfield's influence to include writers as diverse as Colette, Evelyn Waugh, Nettie Palmer, Eve Langley and Frank Sargeson. Key Features: Extends upon models of literary influence that are oriented around the ideas of anxiety and coteries; Engages with and develops areas of scholarly inquiry investigating modernism as the product of social and intellectual networks; Offers new interpretations of Mansfield's relationships with writers with whom she is often associated, such as D H Lawrence, Anton Chekhov and Virginia Woolf; Traces new connections between Mansfield's work and the work of writers not previously linked to Mansfield, such as Evelyn Waugh, Colette and Nettie Palmer.
