Summoned to court at 17, Katherine leaves Cat in the company of her ex-lover, Francis, and the two begin their own, much more serious, love affair.Within months, the king has set aside his Dutch wife Anne for Katherine. The future seems assured for the new queen and her maid-in-waiting, although Cat would feel more confident if Katherine hadn't embarked on an affair with one of the king's favoured attendants, Thomas Culpeper.However, for a blissful year and a half, it seems that Katherine can have everything she wants. But then allegations are made about her girlhood love affairs. Desperately frightened, Katherine recounts a version of events which implicates Francis but which Cat knows to be a lie.

Katherine Mansfield Katherine Mansfield, The Woman Behind The Books (Including Letters, Journals, Essays & Articles)


Virginia Woolf wrote that she was jealous of Mansfield's story-telling skills, and probably the only person of whom the former was in jealous awe of. So who was Katherine Mansfield?

Murry's) efforts, to give an insight into the mind of the renowned modernist short stories writer. Content: Biography The Life of Katherine Mansfield by Ruth E. Mantz & J. Middleton Murry Letters and Journal The Letters of Katherine Mansfield Vol. 1 The Letters of Katherine Mansfield Vol. 2 Journal of Katherine Mansfield Essays and Book Reviews Novels and Novelists Kathleen Mansfield Murry (1888–1923) was a prominent New Zealand modernist short story writer who was born and brought up in colonial New Zealand and wrote under the pen name of Katherine Mansfield. At 19, Mansfield left New Zealand and settled in the United Kingdom, where she became a friend of modernist writers such as D.H. Lawrence and Virginia Woolf. John Middleton Murry (1889-1957) was a famous editor and husband of Katherine Mansfield.
