In An Ideal Family by Katherine Mansfield we have the theme of change, trust, appearance, reliance, appreciation and awareness. Taken from her The Garden Party and Other Stories collection the story is narrated in the third person by an unnamed narrator and from the beginning of the story Mansfield appears to be exploring the theme of change. The fact that Mansfield sets the story in spring may also be significant as spring is suggestive of a new beginning or the start of change , which the handing of the business to Harold would be. This may be significant as symbolically Mansfield may be suggesting that Mr Neave is also struggling or finding it difficult to accept that it may be time for him to retire. It is also very early on in the story that Mansfield appears to be exploring the theme of trust.
Amardeep Singh: Mimicry and Hybridity in Plain English
The story shows how Bertha discovers that she is a bisexual and how she feels about it. It is also a depiction of the conventional patriarchal society where the man works and the women in the house waits for his man to come back home. One symbol is very prominent throughout the story. It means that the tree is unfertilised. Similarly though Bertha is definitely not a virgin as she has a child but she acts like the Young Bertha. In the beginning of the story we see that she has a childish behaviour. All these instances in the story show that bertha is not mature.
Like the stories of C. She said these people influence her greatly, and stil I like to think that if I were in her situation, I would do the same thing.
Literary modernism is characterized by a break in traditional forms of literature such as poetry and prose. The modernists of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries experimented with the structure of their work, striving to create new styles of literature by rejecting conventional forms of expression. Before the outbreak of World War I, early modernists like Ezra Pound favored positive and exuberant styles of writing that embraced life and innovation.
