One of Katherine Mansfield's finest short stories, Bliss introduces us to Bertha, who experiences a sense of rapture as she reflects on her life. On her walk home one day, she is overwhelmed by a sense of bliss and contentment.
However, her joy later turns to disappointment as she discovers her husband is having an affair with her new friend Pearl.
Katherine Mansfield became well-known for her focus on psychological conflicts and complex characters; and "Bliss" displays these qualities brilliantly, exploring themes of marriage, adultery and duplicity. This set also contains five other short stories by Katherine Mansfield: "Mr Reginald Peacock's Day", "Pictures", "The Little Governess", "Feuille D'Album", and "A Dill Pickle".

Katherine Mansfield, 10, Juliet Stevenson, 10.
The story, the hidden character traits, the beauty of this piece with the poetic writing of Katherine Mansfield and the natural beauty of Juliet Stevenson's voice, has uplifted me incredibly. I loved it.
