Katherine Mansfield is widely considered one of the best short story writers of her period. Mansfield also proved ahead of her time in her adoration of Russian playwright and short story writer Anton Chekhov, and incorporated some of his themes and techniques into her writing.
Short stories usually revolve around a few important incidents. These incidents are often key to understanding the ideas of the text.
This is particularly true for the stories of Katherine Mansfield to a large extent. In Bliss an important incident is the dinner party at Bertha Youngs house. In Miss Brill an important incident is an elderly womans visit to the park and her rejection by a young couple.
These events are key in helping readers understand the ideas of the materialism of upper-class society in Victorian England, the cruel nature of humanity and illusion versus reality.
