Katherine Mansfield

Katherine Mansfield was born in Wellington in 1888. She went to school in Wellington and began publishing short stories as a teenager. In 1903 her affluent family went to England for a few years and Katherine discovered the great authors Ibsen and Wilde amongst others, and these became influential to her. The family returned to New Zealand in 1906. Katherine deplored New Zealand high society life, and in 1908 returned to England. Mansfield is considered to be one of New Zealand’s most important Modernist writers, admired, even by Virginia Woolf. Her reputation was established by a book published after her death "The Garden Party and Other Stories". The title story and others in the book were set in New Zealand.
