Mansfield glimmers and sparkles like a Monet painting and prismatically collects poignant little images and pieces of life Her short stories thrill me and whenever I need a new taste of life I seek her out Some of her images have captured me for years and have become private jokes When the woman meets a man she once loved in Dill Pickle and the tiger which had slumbered peacefully roused and woke himself and the girl in Garden Party whose entire life of luxury is shattered when she comes upon a cottage in which the father of the household has just died the inward expression when one has swallowed cream Beautiful uniue writer

opalescent prose like the diaphanous glimmer of pale winter sunshine on the early morning frost echoes and reverberates across her stories suffusing it with a kind of sad somnolent atmosphere snapshots into the various facets of human behaviour although the primary driving force behind Mansfield s portraits is sympathy sympathy for the vain and vapid yet endearing Beryl or the impoverished Kelvey family in The Doll s House or the timid and timorous Reginald in the wonderful Mrs and Mrs Dove Mansfield s uses pathos to explore the desire and motives of her characters their dreams and hopes and the small often unnoticed and un celebrated but important moments of their livesThe Burnell family are one of the mainstays in Mansfield s stories with Prelude dealing with their recent move to the country the story is dominated by light and its resplendence Long pencil rays of sunlight shone through and the wavy shadow of a bush outside danced on the golden lines Now it was still now it began to flutter again and now it came as far as her feetEverything looked different the painted wooden houses far smaller than they did by day the gardens far bigger and wilder Bright stars speckled the sky and the moon hung over the harbour dabbling the waves with goldLight is largely symbolic of the story itself the Burnell s are making a fresh start of life away form the hustle of the town and into the comparative freedom of the country yet beneath Mansfield s picaresue prose there likes a sense of apprehension from the childish nervousness of Kezia and Lottie to Linda s baleful boredom with her at times fatuous husband husband or Beryl s uncertainty about finding an unsuitable rich partner in the country Few writers explored the inner lives of their female characters with as much depth and subtlety as Mansfield sometimes in the case of Beryl s solilouies on her beauty the reader becomes sympathetic than expected or in the case of Linda s outwardly boorish husband Mansfield is able to late confound her initial characterisation and reader expectations by revealing that beneath the macho posturing he can be a kind and sensitive man such as when he spends the whole day fretting about not saying goodbye to his wife LindaMansfield s painterly vignettes freuently evoke impressionism and it s obsession with light and natures as Mansfield describes the various textures of the natural world from her Cezanne like description of a bowl of fruit in Je Ne Parle Pas Francais or the Monet esue descriptions of moon light As they stood on the steps the high grassy bank on which the aloe rested rose up like a wave and the aloe seemed to ride upon it like a ship with the oars lifted Bright moon light hung upon the lifted oars like water and the green waves glittered in the dueIt is not just the impressionist obsessions with light which Mansfield was influenced by but also some their social and psychological insights her intimate and sensual descriptions of the female characters are reminiscent of Renoir once can also spot the influences of French literature and poetry in some of the melancholic descriptions The far away sky a bright pure blue was reflected in the puddles and the drops swimming along the telegraph poles flashed into points of light Now the leaping glittering sea was so bright it made one s eyes ache to look at itThe other major influences in Mansfield as with most modern story writers is of course Chekhov who Mansfield pastiches and often even plagiarises and whose concern with the down trodden and pathetic is echoed in Mansfield s work Yet despite these obvious influences Mansfield s art is wholly her original her themes and style thoroughly post modern in which character motives and actions are rarely explained and left ambiguous and her shifts in narrative mean that Mansfield pioneered the post modern concept of the writer no longer explaining everything to the reader of engaging them by actively involving them in the art of story telling and challenging their capacities Indeed Mansfield s prose could be summed up in the following passage of self reflection by a character Yet everything had come down the tiniest minutest particle and she did not feel her bed she floated held up in the air Only she seemed to be listening with her wide open watchful eyes waiting for someone who just did not come watching for something to happen than just did not happen
