Doris Lessing

Poetics of Being and Time

Author(s): Bootheina Majoul

Book Description

Doris Lessing is a writer for all times; she is a historiographer and a transnational translational mediator between the East and the West. This volume provides a collection of articles analysing Doris Lessing’s literature. The first part, entitled “Lessing’s World of Words”, offers a broad vision of the writer’s novels; it introduces her many genres and sheds light on her literary affiliations. This is followed by “Lessing’s Other Spaces”, which dives into the novelist’s imaginary and spiritual universes. The final part, “Intersections: Lessing and Other Writers” establishes an analogy between Lessing’s texts and Ahlem Mustaghanemi’s Memory in the Flesh, Atiq Rahimi’s Earth and Ashes and Salman Rushdie’s Shame.
