But I also believe the story is about life, the hardships of life, poverty, the innocence of children, the trust children put into their parents, the gossip of small towns, the resentment and bitterness of the hardships of life, being a mother, rural life, denial, guilt, and compassion....   [tags: Katharine Anne Porter He Essays]

The Feminist Struggle in Katherine Mansfield’s Short Stories - Katherine Mansfield belongs to a group of female authors that have used their financial resources and social standing to critique the patriarchal status quo.

The progressive era in which Mansfield writes proves to be especially problematic because, “[w]hile the Modernist tradition typically undermined middle-class values, women … did not have the recognized rights necessary to fully embrace the liberation from the[se] values” (Martin 69)....   [tags: Katherine Mansfield]
