Laura's Lessons in Katherine Mansfield's " The Garden Party "
Laura takes her breakfast outside and is astonished to find four polite, strapping men who speak with an urgency and directness unlike anyone from her own social class. The telephone rings and Laura runs inside to answer it, briefly encountering her father and her brother Laurie on the way. She answers it, invites a family friend to lunch, and hears the piano being moved in the other room.
They meet him at the front door and see trays upon trays of beautiful pink canna lilies, which Mrs. Sheridan ordered on a whim the day before when she saw them in a shop window. Laura complains that her mother promised the children control over the party this year, but Mrs. Sheridan convinces her daughter to overlook her interference. Sheridan has not written the flags yet but tells Sadie that she has them before ordering Laura to write the names.
She accuses the children of hiding the envelope where the guest list is written, but finds it behind the dining-room clock. The cook tells Laura and Jose to have a cream puff each, and they scarf them down even though they find it improper to eat sweets so soon after breakfast. Laura then approaches her mother, who cares even less: Mrs. After lunch, Laurie returns from the office and Laura goes to ask his opinion on stopping the party.
After her brother compliments her hat, Laura decides not to bring up the accident after all and goes to the party, which Mansfield recounts in scarcely half a page. After it ends, the Sheridans convene in the marquee and Mr. Sheridan, irritated that her husband also wants to ruin their fun, makes fun of Laura and then suddenly has an idea: they should send their leftovers to the Scotts.
Laura finds this presumptuous but agrees to take the basket herself. Laura heads down to the cottages, where she is horrified at the unsightly residents and ashamed at her own expensive clothes.
To her surprise, Laura finds the body peaceful and marvelous; she sees the man as dreaming, far removed from the suffocating constraints of social convention. He embraces and comforts her as she cries but does not understand that hers are tears of joy; Laura starts to explain what she has realized but cannot finish her sentence.

I'm determined to leave everything to you children this year. Forget I am your mother. Treat me as an honoured guest. He bent down, pinched a sprig of lavender, put his thumb and forefinger to his nose and snuffed up the smell. When Laura saw that gesture she forgot all about the karakas in her wonder at him caring for things like that the smell of lavender. How many men that she knew would have done such a thing?

The Garden Party And Other Stories
Here is a brief review for a title that might seem like an unexpected choice for a blog mostly dedicated to crime and mystery fiction, but …. A good mate of mine gave me this book as a present in advance of my trip to New Zealand last month and so it followed me through Queenstown, Lakes Wanaka and Wakatipu and Milford Sound, all amazing places. Katherine Mansfield — spent as much of her brief life there as she did in Europe and her stories reflect this divide.

And from the bush there came the sound of little streams flowing, quickly, lightly, slipping between the smooth stones, gushing into ferny basins and out again; and there was the splashing of big drops on large leaves, and something else—what was it?
The Garden Party and Other Stories
And after all the weather was ideal. They could not have had a more perfect day for a garden-party if they had ordered it. Windless, warm, the sky without a cloud.
Старший дешифровщик, нескладный тип по имени Морант, не выпускавший сигареты изо рта, недоверчиво уставился на Беккера. - То есть вы хотите сказать, что эти знаки имеют множественное значение. Беккер кивнул. Он объяснил, что кандзи - это система японского письма, основанная на видоизмененных китайских иероглифах. Он же давал им китайские значения, потому что такую задачу они перед ним поставили. - Господи Иисусе.
Set in Europe and New Zealand, these nine stories by Katherine Mansfield dig deep beneath the appearances of life to show us the causes of human happiness.
- Сядьте. Однако Беккер был слишком ошеломлен, чтобы понять смысл этих слов. - Sientate! - снова крикнул водитель. Беккер увидел в зеркале заднего вида разъяренное лицо, но словно оцепенел. Раздраженный водитель резко нажал на педаль тормоза, и Беккер почувствовал, как перемещается куда-то вес его тела. Он попробовал плюхнуться на заднее сиденье, но промахнулся.
Стены туннеля начали обретать форму. И сразу же из-за поворота выехала миниатюрная машина, ослепившая ее фарами. Сьюзан слегка оторопела и прикрыла глаза рукой. Ее обдало порывом воздуха, и машина проехала мимо. Но в следующее мгновение послышался оглушающий визг шин, резко затормозивших на цементном полу, и шум снова накатил на Сьюзан, теперь уже сзади.
- Что показалось тебе странным. Сьюзан восхитилась спектаклем, который на ее глазах разыгрывал коммандер. - ТРАНСТЕКСТ работает с чем-то очень сложным, фильтры никогда ни с чем подобным не сталкивались. Боюсь, что в ТРАНСТЕКСТЕ завелся какой-то неизвестный вирус.
Ты только представь себе, что будет, если об этом станет известно. - Директор в Южной Америке. - Извини. Я не могу этого сделать. - Скрестив на груди руки, он вышел из ее кабинета.
В свете ламп дневного света он сумел разглядеть под красноватой припухлостью смутные следы каких-то слов, нацарапанных на ее руке.
