The Grass Is Singing (Paperback): Doris May Lessing The Grass Is Singing (Paperback)
Doris May Lessing
R370 R299 Discovery Miles 2 990 Save R71 (19%) Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Set in Southern Rhodesia under white rule, Doris Lessing's first novel is at once a riveting chronicle of human disintegration, a beautifully understated social critique, and a brilliant depiction of the quiet horror of one woman's struggleagainst a ruthless fate.

Mary Turner is a self-confident, independent young woman who becomes the depressed, frustrated wife of an ineffectual, unsuccessful farmer. Little by little the ennui of years on the farm works its slow poison. Mary's despair progresses until the fateful arrival of Moses, an enigmatic, virile black servant. Locked in anguish, Mary and Moses--master and slave--are trapped in a web of mounting attraction and repulsion, until their psychic tension explodes with devastating consequences.

Este volumen contiene cinco conferencias que la escritora expuso en 1985 en las que la autora, galardonada con el Premio Nobel de Literatura 2007, estructura una honda reflexin sobre las posibilidades de la racionalidad frente al totalitarismo. Por qu la humanidad parece incapaz de eludir la barbarie? Por qu si ahora sabemos tanto sobre la conducta humana no somos capaces de aprovechar lo que nos ensean la historia y la sociologa? Ante la crueldad, los dogmas, la mercadotecnia, las modas caprichosas de la opinin pblica, Lessing contrapone una tenue pero segura confianza: al menos ahora la humanidad es capaz de observarse a s misma con objetividad, y en esta capacidad est cifrado su futuro.

Ben Lovatt can never fit in. He seems awkward - too big, too strong, inhumanly made. Those who do not understand him want him locked up, including his own mother. Now he has come of age and finds himself alone in the south of France, in Brazil and in the mountains of the Andes, where at last he finds out where he has come from and who are his people.

This major collection contains all of Doris Lessing's short fiction, other than the stories set in Africa, from the beginning of her career until now. Set in London, Paris, the south of France, the English countryside, these thirty-five stories reflect the themes that have always characterized Lessing's work: the bedrock realities of marriage and other relationships between men and women; the crisis of the individual whose very psyche is threatened by a society unattuned to its own most dangerous qualities; the fate of women.

Anna is a writer, author of one very successful novel, who now keeps four notebooks. In one, with a black cover, she reviews the African experience of her earlier years. In a red one she records her political life, her disillusionment with communism. In a yellow one she writes a novel in which the heroine relives part of her own experience. And in a blue one she keeps a personal diary. Finally, in love with an American writer and threatened with insanity, Anna tries to bring the threads of all four books together in a golden notebook.
