In pursuit of Doris Lessing

Nine nations reading

Claire Sprague



The phenomenon of Doris Lessing's reputation and readership is addressed through essays that also provide an overview of Lessing's career from The Grass is Singing, the first of a series of African and woman-centred politically radical works, to her latest galactic and politically radical works. Nine different Lessings emerge from these essays, forcing us to question received propositions about the universality of literature and the stability of the text and uncovering and recovering in the process the pungent, variable, controversial Lessing who has been and remains as international and transcultural as she is African and English.
