Literary Classics: Katherine Mansfield

"Make it a rule of life never to regret and never to look back.

Regret is an appalling waste of energy, you can't build on it, it's

only good for wallowing in."

Katherine Mansfield

The Literary Classics group will reconvene in May with a four part

series studying the short stories of gifted New Zealand author

Katherine Mansfield. Her brief, albeit turbulent life lasted from

1888 to 1923.

This interest group format has evolved through reading stories

aloud, with pauses to reflect on and discuss interesting passages.

As we unpack Mansfield’s extraordinary and significant literary

achievements, we’ll learn more about the art of the short story.

Some of her most famous stories include:

At The Bay, The Garden Party, and her last, The Canary.

It isn’t necessary to buy books as internet addresses are provided

so members can access assigned stories online.

Where: cSpace (WiFi), 3rd Flr, King Edward School 1721-29th Ave, SW

Time: Mondays from 10 am – 12 noon

When: May 15 & 29, June 12 & 26

Facilitator: William (Will) Hatherell has lived in Calgary for the past

two years since moving from Brisbane, Australia in 2012. He has a

background in literary studies, including a master’s degree on the

poetry of William Wordsworth from the University of Sydney and a

PhD in Australian literature from the University of Queensland.
