The Dove's Nest

And Other Stories
A collection of stories by

Mansfield is New Zealand's most famous writer. She was closely associated with D.H. Lawrence and something of a rival of Virginia Woolf. Mansfield's creative years were burdened with loneliness, illness, jealousy, alienation, all this reflected in her work with the bitter depiction of marital and family relationships of her middle-class characters. Her short stories are also notable for their use of stream of consciousness. Like the Russian writer Anton Chekhov, Mansfield depicted trivial events and subtle changes in human behavior. Mansfield's family memoirs were collected in Bliss and secured her reputation as a writer. Contents: The Doll's House; A Cup of Tea; Taking the Veil; The Fly; The Canary; A Married Man's Story; The Doves' Nest; Six Years After; Daphne; Father and the Girls; All Serene!; A Bad Idea; A Man and His Dog; Such a Sweet Old Lady; Honesty; Susannah; Second Violin; Mr. and Mrs. Williams; Weak Heart; and Widowed.
