Sex & Lies
Nothing that Woolf and her Bloomsbury crowd didn't indulge in, mind you, but without their well-bred manners and cover of intellectualism. No wonder Woolf considered Mansfield cheap and whorish, while Mansfield found the slightly older author a prig. They did seem to have enjoyed discussing writing with each other though. The difference in Mansfield's personality perhaps translates in her writing into a greater grounding in the everyday concerns of ordinary people—people with flesh and blood, not just theoretical entities.
This may be a vast simplification. We have very little of Mansfield's work to compare, a few collections of short stories published in just over a decade. Mansfield died young from tuberculosis she is thought to have contracted from D. She is also thought to have been the model for the devilishly uninhibited Gudrun in Lawrence's The Rainbow and Women in Love.
Yet her work is regarded as having greatly influenced short-story writing right up to the present. Along with Joyce in Dubliners and several other writers of her time including Lawrence and Woolf, she was an originator of the modernist style, eschewing straightforward narrative to build up each story through the accumulation of finely observed, seemingly inconsequential moments.
You may or may not appreciate this transformation of writing or the later post- modernist, further fragmentation of plot and sense , but you have to accept that almost every serious writer today adopts this approach to some extent.

In Bavaria by Katherine Mansfield (ebook)
As Alpers notes, it is certainly conceivable that Mansfield could have read this collection in the reading room of the General Assembly Library in Wellington after her return there from London; although there is no record of her actually borrowing the edition, the library held a copy in Alpers, Life , p. Saralyn R. It is worth noting that the politics of the journal were constantly evolving, so that the New Age of is very different from that of Richard L. Antony Alpers ed.
