A critical analysis of Doris Lessing’s The Grass is singing
Arshi Bano, L Manjula Davidson
Doris Lessing as a writer aspires to throw light upon the cruelty of the real world instead of creating something imaginary, one that cannot be felt by people around the world. The present study displays this fact through analysing her first work; The Grass is Singing (1950). It analyses the work from different perspectives. And though these different viewpoints, one can glean the fact that the novel is a multi-thematic one. Furthermore, the study can be used to make readers familiar with Doris Lessing as a writer who does not belong to a univocal culture or mentality. She addresses issues which concern people all around the world; therefore, this study can be an example of a work that principally focuses on the achievements of a creative writer irrespective of his/her background.
