Katherine Mansfield and Literary Influence

Gerri Kimber

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter addresses Katherine Mansfield’s close personal and professional collaboration with the Russian S. S. Koteliansky. It explores the exchange between Bloomsbury modernism and Russian literature by focusing on Koteliansky’s collaborations with Mansfield and others in translating works to make them available to an audience with an appetite for all things Russian. Although the translation process appears to have been an equal collaboration, power registers through Koteliansky’s desire, as an outsider, for acceptance, and the power Bloomsbury had to accept or reject him. Even with Mansfield, with whom he shared a ‘perhaps uncommon friendship’, the exchange was unequal.
