Katherine Mansfield and Virginia Woolf shared a personal and professional relationship which both recognised as being central to the development of their writing. Their relationship was strongly influenced not only by the many life experiences which they shared, and the similarity of their artistic projects, but also by their different positions in terms of empire. This essay examines the Mansfield/Woolf relationship within the context of the broader imperial relationship during the modernist period, and offers new approaches to considering both writers within modernist literary history.
