Edinburgh University Press

This is an account of reading Katherine Mansfield's The Montana Stories whilst cataloguing the collection, and an investigation into the role of the archive in Mansfield's published and imagined afterlives. The essay concentrates on the deaths (both fictional and real) that loom large in all of Mansfield's work, but particularly in those stories composed in Switzerland, and suggests that the chronological arrangement of the Persephone edition amplifies the morbid and elliptical nature of library work, editorial interference, and Mansfield's uncanny endings.
