At the Bay by Katherine Mansfield

By Katherine Mansfield

an excellent modernist classic--now to be had for the 1st time in a stand-alone edition

This dreamy, officially audacious tale of a summer's day within the lifetime of one kinfolk is a small masterpiece through Katherine Mansfield, hailed as "one of the nice modernist writers. Virginia Woolf acknowledged of Mansfield, hers was once "the merely writing i've got ever been jealous of."

A modernist grasp of cool precision and outstanding delicacy, Mansfield wrote approximately kinfolk lifestyles with a pointy radicalism, and At the Bay is considered one of her maximum works. instructed in 13 elements, starting early within the morning and finishing at nightfall, At the Bay captures either the Burnell family's tricky internet of family members and acquaintances, and the dreamy, unassuming ordinary fantastic thing about Crescent Bay.

Haunting yet ever understated, At the Bay is as undying novella, and a testomony to Mansfield's amazing powers.
