(p.261) Conclusion
Katherine Mansfield and Periodical Culture

Chris Mourant

Edinburgh University Press

The concluding chapter reiterates the central claim of this book, that reading Mansfield’s writings within the original historical contexts of periodical publication enables us to situate her work more resolutely as embedded within particular political, aesthetic and social debates, and as produced through networks of association with other writers and artists. It is argued that this focus helps to challenge the misconception of Mansfield as a writer of limited generic interest, revealing the incredible diversity of genres that she employed throughout her writing career. Importantly, returning to the periodicals and magazines in which Mansfield published also enables us to reposition her more decisively as a colonial-metropolitan modernist, writing both within and against the London literary establishment.
