In a German Pension

Katherine Mansfield

First published in 1911, Katherine Mansfield's collection "In a German Pension" was inspired by her extended stay in a spa town in Bavaria in 1909, during which she suffered a miscarriage. The collection brought her instant fame and popularity as a short story writer, particularly as her amusing - though less than favourable - caricatures of the Germans were very popular at that time: - Germans at Meat -The Baron - The Sister of the Baroness - Frau Fischer - Frau Brechenmacher Attends a Wedding - The Modern Soul - At Lehmann’s - The Luft Bad - A Birthday - The Child-who-was-tired - The Advanced Lady - The Swing of the Pendulum - A Blaze
