The Katherine Mansfield scholar Dr Gerri Kimber has discovered 26 unpublished poems by Katherine Mansfield in a Chicago library in the United States.

The poems, written during Mansfield’s “hedonistic period” 1909-10, were in an unpublished manuscript submitted to the publisher Elkin Mathews who published works by both James Joyce and Ezra Pound.
