Rhythm and the Short Story

Rhythm and the Short Story

(p.108) Chapter 5 Rhythm and the Short Story
The Modern Short Story and Magazine Culture, 1880-1950

Louise Edensor

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter examines the short stories published in John Middleton Murry’s modernist magazine Rhythm, published between 1911 and 1913. This chapter shows how these frequently dismissed short stories in fact formed a fundamental part of the expression of the magazine’s Bergsonian principles. Setting aside the critically acclaimed stories by Katherine Mansfield, this chapter focuses on the lesser-known stories illustrating how their heterogeneity and creativity contributed towards, and helped to formulate, Murry’s conceptualisation of Rhythm.

Keywords:   John Middleton Murry, Katherine Mansfield, Frederick Goodyear, short story, Henri Bergson
