    One thought on “Miss Brill: Short Story”

    1. Pride comes before a fall, or so the saying goes Miss Brill, the pompous and condescending old lady finds this out when she is seen as one of those weirdo eccentrics who sit in the park and talk to themselves And she suddenly realises her place in the world.Good story, well told, very sad I hope it doesn t happen to me.

    2. It s difficult for me to describe why I love Katherine Mansfield s short stories so much Their vibrations fit my vibrations I guess This story has a simple premise, one identifiable character Miss Brill , in a park setting, for one short afternoon Yet Mansfield, in a few short pages bares the soul of this woman Miss Brill is the Eleanor Rigby of short stories.

    3. Whilst I enjoyed the short stories in here, I was surprised thatBliss wasn t included It is her most renowned short story and, perhaps, her best one because it shows us the power of an unreliable narrator in a memorable way I don t think this edition is very helpful to those looking for an introduction to Mansfield, I d recommend starting with Bliss The main story in here is called Miss Brill, and the character, Miss Brill, has built herself a little bubble to protect herself from reality she ha [...]

    4. The main story here is the story of a lady that spends her time listening into people s conversations as she sits in the park, and then she begins creating her own imaginary world as her loneliness becomes evident In the end, it is a tale of isolation, and it made me quite sad to think of poor Miss Brill in her bench, and how some people in the story make fun of her Karma is not nice This book was read for the readwomen month My favourite of her stories Bliss was not shown here, that one would [...]

    5. SummaryAlthough the day was warm, Miss Brill was happy she had decided to wear her fur She had taken it out that morning for the first time all season, brushing its coat and polishing its eyes She enjoyed the way its sad eyes looked up at her and how soft the fur was Miss Brill called it little rogue and liked how its head tickled her behind the ear She was so happy she thought about putting the fur on her lap and stroking it .Sitting on her usual bench at the Jardins Publiques, a public local [...]

    6. I liked this story because it reminded me of myself Not because of the fur or she lives through others,but because she likes to watch others and comment on them and even create stories about them when she does not know what is going on in their lives The ending was very sad though because that rude boy made Miss Brill think she was unloved and sent her home crying I mean, she wasn t hurting anyone by watching them and creating her fantasies, it just made her happy.

    7. And again, as always, he had the feeling he was holding something that never was quite his Something too delicate, too precious, that would fly away once he let go Katherine Mansfield got some serious skill My God, she knows how to write a story for sure In this Little Black Classic we get presented three of her short stories and each individually impressed me.I love good writing duh Give me some pretty, poetic phrases and I ll be all over you Not everyone is capable of using the right words, bu [...]

    8. This was my first taste of Katherine Mansfield, and I thoroughly enjoyed it This book contains three of her stories Marriage La Mode, Miss Brill, and The Stranger.Out of the three, Marriage La Mode was my absolute favourite I found it cutting and funny, and a great comment on society and personal identity It was an incredibly clever story, and one I would highly recommend everyone check out Miss Brill, the title story, was sweet but ultimately quite sad, and the final story The Stranger, althoug [...]

    9. Miss Brill reminded me of myself and I was surging with happiness that an author could put in to words the feelings I get which seem so hard to explain to people who are often completely inside their heads and overly cynical every other day When I read the young couple judging her, I teared up It cut too close to home, along with feeling bad for them attacking a person who did nothing but be I know what it feels like to wear something deemed weird by many just because you like it and to be truly [...]

    10. A wonderfully melancholy collection of 3 short stories All 3 had an element of naivete about the protagonist, something like an air of innocence that becomes tainted before the story is over It is the shattering of the gentle illusions that left me as a reader feeling a pang of loss on their behalf Mansfield has a flair for moody domestic scenes, and I will definitely seek out her other work.

    11. Mansfield s writing is delicate and elegant, and her depiction of the characters is always fine and detailed, but in an attentive and never too revealing way, which makes them real and human, as well ever changing something I really like about her style.What the three stories have in common is the theme of communication understanding, or rather the lack of it, which eventually brings us to the theme of loneliness Here again, she manages to be delicate and witty without being dramatic, and herme [...]

    12. Katherine Mansfield and three little sad stories so lyrical written that I wanted I love sadness when it s beautifully written, sue me

    13. All three stories in this small collection have a turning point in which the main character feels himself or herself to be an outsider to be on the fringe of things, to be absurd, even mocked, to be unloved Mansfield has a light touch, but her conclusions can be quite devastating Although Miss Brill is in some ways the least substantial story, its poison dart is most effective It gets at a human fear that I think most of us feel at one time or another the fear of being superfluous, not wanted, n [...]

    14. Miss Birll why on earth i love Miss birll I don t know i just loved this short story and didn t think twice in giving it 5 pointsMiss Birll is a true example of how community deals with old people and how they think about themselves.old people are very simple, if they knew that people are paying attention to them they will be so happy however, even this little thing we take it away from them selfishness is all what we can describe our actions with them with we neglect them, make fun of them and [...]

    15. This is a wonderful selection of stories about sad everyday human events If a story needs to be singled out it would be Miss Brill this little narrative is a beautiful creation of the life of Miss Brill and her regular Sunday out.Katherine Mansfield has mastered the art of the everyday mundane events as something wonderful A gentleman checking his watch waiting for his wifes boat to come in means than it should.Definately a writer who needs to be read .Absolutely delightful.

    16. Three short stories made with the finest ingredients of the genre creeping undercurrents that remain half hidden to the last word, the human soul at a glance, setting up a whole spectrum of moods in the span of 10 to 20 pages, a perfect measure of everything Exquisite Off to the rest of The Garden Party and Other Stories.2015 Reading Challenge A book set somewhere you ve always wanted to visit

    17. This could possibly be my favorite story ever written Though short Mansfield manages to impart meaning and emotion into a few short pages then most can in a epic novel Though not the happiest of short stories it s rich images made feel almost like i was the character herself

    18. stories of loneliness and sorrow of what we want to hold on but as it does not belong to us, it will escape us forever

    19. It was pure coincidence that I picked No 72 of Penguin s Little Black Classics out of the box right after finishing No 48, but it turned out to be a happy pairing No 48 is Edith Wharton s The Reckoning, and Katherine Mansfield s lonely, dysfunctional characters in the three short stories here Marriage a la Mode, Miss Brill, and The Stranger resonate intriguingly against Wharton s portrayals of women who, while terribly isolated, nevertheless refuse to subside in complete silence Born about twent [...]

    20. This is another title I was introduced to via audio this time downloaded from LibriVox It is from a book of short stories by Katherine Mansfield, called The Garden Party, which I am now anxious to find.Miss Brill is the main character in a story about a woman who visits the park in her small town every Sunday In the springtime, their are concerts, and as she is waiting one day for one to begin, she makes observations about those around her She is a woman of very definite opinions, leading what s [...]

    21. I see that many people find Miss Brill to be pompous and looking down her nose at the little people coming from their cupboards I didnt find that at all as all these characters on the stage were so valuable to her There is equal footing in this family of stage characters It is heart breaking to realize that something that is integral to the happiness in your life is essentially garbage to someone else Seems like she thought that she shared something common with them and they were endeared to he [...]

    22. The air was motionless, but when you opened your mouth there was just a faint chill, like a chill from a glass of iced water before you sip, and now and again a leaf came drifting from nowhere, from the sky Mansfield s writing about early fall is poetic and rich.

    23. Beautiful little story that deals with loneliness and the desperate desire to connect I will definitely check out some of Mansfield s work.

    24. Withholding from saying much, I ll just say this undoubtedly anyone will find Miss Brill short story very relatable at one point or another in his her life if not repeatedly

    25. I loved all of the stories I d never read Katherine Mansfield before, but holy moly guys this is the thing She is probably my new queen I m not even really into short stories and I absolutely loved them all I really wanted all three to continue, they were that good I m trying very hard not to wax lyrical about these, because I think the less I say, the better I don t want to give too much away and feel like her stories are better experienced first hand than summarised by me.It s 2 worth of beaut [...]

    26. I did so much enjoy these New Zealand short stories, though I m not certain why Written well, but often subtle and vague, which often infuriates me Occasionally with pointless moments, but also of the kind that speak to you across the ages.Blog Instagram Twitter Pinterest Shop Etsy

    27. A beautifully sad story about a woman who doesn t belong in society She criticizes and pities others for being odd, silent, outsiders and then realises that she herself is an odd, silent, outsider Beautiful symbolism and comparisons.

    28. I need Katherine Mansfield in my life Her writing is not only superb, she also has this talent of capturing characters in a really subtle way Loved the stories and can only recommend them
