The Doves’ Nest Overview"The Doves' Nest" is a short story by English writer Katherine Mansfield. It was originally published in 1923 in the posthumous collection The Doves' Nest and Other Stories. Mansfield died before she could complete the story, so it exists as one of the many short story fragments that Mansfield began before her death. Nonetheless, "The Doves's Nest" is one of the longest stories in the collection, dramatizing a luncheon between three women and an unexpected male visitor at a villa in the French Riviera. The story explores themes like unspoken tension, English versus French culture, and manifestations of grief.
