 Katherine Mansfield (1888-1923)

Website: KatherineMansfield.com

Katherine Mansfield was born in Wellington, New Zealand, in 1888 and died in Fontainebleau in 1923. She came to London for the latter part of her education, and could not settle down back in Wellington society; in 1908 she again left for Europe, never to return. By 1917 she had contracted tuberculosis, and from that time led a wandering life in search of health.  Katherine Mansfield was a compulsive writer. Three volumes of her stories appeared in her lifetime. Her work has been translated into 26 languages, and in 1988, the centennial of her birth, five international conferences focused on her life and work.
