This collection of short stories was edited by her husband John Middleton Murry. It was interesting to see Mansfield develop a story at least in part through a male point of view. I think it is significant that the male character is quite young. It has a clear beginning, a plot in which Harry gets to know another train rider, a sixteen year old Edna.

Both of them are regular train riders and gradually they fall in love. It is a first love for both of them and the feeling between them is very well developed. Their relationship advances first to a simple excursion then to the point where they look at a cottage and seem to pondering renting it to live in together. Then something very strange happens. This is the only one of her works I have read so far maybe 30 stories that has any sort of Gothic or supernatural feel to it.

I am open to the possibility that I am projecting that onto the ending to perhaps achieve a forced understanding of the story. I did not all see the strange ending coming and I liked it a lot. The full Mansfield short story collections come to little more than pages. Mel u.

Start your review of Something Childish But Very Natural Great Loves, 13 Write a review Shelves: , reviewed , short-stories-novella If love was a red dress Short story writer Katherine Mansfield was a perfect stranger to me until I got intrigued by a few sentences about her in Alexandra Harriss short biography on Virginia Woolf , depicting her as a friend with whom Woolf had a thoroughly complicated and almost obsessive literary and personal relationship, mutually inspiring but also rivalrous. Woolf wrote in her diary about Mansfield: I was jealous of her writingthe only writing I have ever been jealous of. Each of the eight stories conveys a subsequent stage love can pass through: from a coup de foudre, a tender infatuation, a proposal of marriage, a honeymoon, two scenes of conjugal life, an encounter with an old flame and widowhood. In subtle hues Mansfield sensuously paints the complexity of emotions, mostly bittersweet moments of thorny innocence, fragile happiness sprouting from blissful immature ignorance or childish ingenuousness, vulnerability doomed to crumble under the reality of unrequitedness, marital cruelty, disillusionment or social conventions.
