Katherine Mansfield: Letters and Journals: A Selection

14 November 2018


I sometimes wonder whether the act of surrender is not one of the greatest of all - the highest. It is one of the [most] difficult of all… You see it’s so immensely complicated. It needs real humility and at the same time, an absolute belief in one’s own essential freedom. It is an act of faith. At the last moments, like all great acts, it is pure risk. This is true for me as a human being and as a writer. Dear Heaven, how hard it is to let go - to step into the blue. And yet one’s creative life depends on it and one desires to do nothing else.
