Katherine Mansfield's story collection "In a German Pension" (1911) contains the story "The modern Soul", which takes Germany as its setting in the period before the First World War. The first-person narrator masterfully describes her impressions in a small South German spa town. The character, behaviour and expressions of the bourgeois guests at the "Pension Müller" are recorded in snapshots. "Recent English literature owes much to women, and one of the most peculiar talents was Katherine Mansfield. Her stories have such an amazing face and are so masterly that they have made the early deceased famous." H. HESSE
