Anxiety and Alienation of Women in Mansfield’s “Bliss,”
and the Effect of Free Indirect Discourse
Abstract Soyoung Park
In “Bliss,” Katherine Mansfield shows her use of free indirect
discourse (FID). Mansfield’s FID expresses the dazzling feeling of
bliss that the main character Bertha Young thinks she shares with her
new female friend Pearl Fulton. The origin of Bertha’s bliss lies
mysteriously hidden. At the end of the story she realizes with a
shock that her feeling is not the “bliss” coming from Pearl Fulton,
but “desire” for her husband Harry. She also discovers that Harry
and Pearl Fulton are lovers, which means Pearl shares her own
unique bliss, and the shared mood has the same origin for each love
for Harry. In this short fiction, Mansfield builds up her own style of
FID which does not construct sentences or phrases with definite
meanings. Mansfield’s FID thus delays and interrupts the revelation
of the veiled story of the text, the hidden love triangle among Bertha,
Pearl, and Harry. Bertha seems to conceal the self-deceptive truth of
her life. By pretending to experience a confused feeling of bliss and
desire, Bertha seems to maintain her life of self-deception. The result
is two different interpretations: first, Bertha is a self-deceived
sympathizer of patriarchy; second, Bertha’s self-deception is the result
of alienation by patriarchy.
