"Katherine Mansfield's short story, "Her First Ball," is about an eighteen-year-old girl, Leila, who is attending her first major dance. She is a girl from the country who has not yet had any experience with parties and romance; she is even called the "country cousin" by Meg. Mansfield's story is filled with images of life and also contains a reminder of mortality and death."
