‘I think … I am going to die.’

‘I think … I am going to die.’

Katherine Mansfield at Fontainebleau

When Miss Katherine Mansfield, the brilliant novelist, passed away the other day in almost the spring of her promise, it was in a curious little oasis in the historic Forest of Fontainebleau ... From The Graphic, 10 March 1923

This moving, beautifully written chapter from Kathleen Jones’s biography Katherine Mansfield: The Story-teller (2010), describes Mansfield’s last days and death at a chateau near Paris, the centre of a spiritual movement led by the mysterious Russian philosopher-mystic Georges Gurdjieff.
