A world of difference

Helen M Walters looks at the way contrasts work in Her First Ball by Katherine Mansfield


This month’s story is full of contrasts. And it is the way the author has highlighted these contrasts that brings the story to life, interweaving with its plot and reinforcing its theme. As always, you will benefit most from this masterclass if you read the story for yourself, at http://writ.rs/nov17wm

Her First Ball by Katherine Mansfield is quite a straightforward story at first glance. A young girl attends her first ball, accompanied by her slightly older cousins. She dances with various men and learns a bit about life and how the world works. What makes it compelling is the way Katherine Mansfield has illustrated the contrasting elements of the story so vividly.
