This chapter examines the intermedial qualities of Mansfield’s fiction as a form of translation, suggesting that her work draws upon the new technologies of rail travel and the cinema in order to explore changing perceptions of the modern world. Mansfield’s fiction is aligned with early twentieth century visual culture, adapting the visual effects of various new media into written word. The chapter also discusses the connection between translation and transposition, examining the liminal journeys undertaken by Mansfield’s characters in terms of exile, subjective vision, and cultural perceptions of time and space.
