“The Fly” and “The Doves’ Nest” by Katherine Mansfield

The Fly has been touted as the perfect short story by some. It definitely has an impact on the reader, or listener in this case. The Doves’ Nest is an interesting commentary on the issue of the company of men from the women’s perspective. This “nest” has all female servants, a widow, her female companion and her daughter. When a gentleman comes calling, the doves are all a flutter. Great fun! But with an interesting message in the undercurrent. Enjoy!
