The Garden Party by Katherine Mansfield
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The Garden Party delights in setting and breaking the boundaries of class, convention and experience. A hat, like the one worn, can be a marker of all three especially when handed down from mother to daughter. Death, the great leveler raises questions on these areas which is balanced out by all the limitless possibilities of life, once you are not restrained or restricted by such boundaries as class, convention or experience.
