  4. 'Wild Places': Katherine Mansfield's imaginative worlds
    Evening
    Course start date:  Wed 12 Feb 2025

    Location on this date:  Online

    Tutors:  Fiona McCulloch
    This course will introduce and discuss a selection of short stories by Katherine Mansfield. Mansfield’s approach to art is to embrace hidden depths, to seek untamed and unhindered aspects lurking in the shadows, writing with a wild surmise in an attempt to find new literary vistas. Similarly, describing herself as ‘an alien’, we will consider her self-asserted feeling of strangeness as an outsider, and how this might manifest itself in her fictional work.
