A review of ‘The Grass is Singing’ by Doris Lessing

‘The Grass is Singing’ is a very thoughtful and fascinating story written by Doris Lessing. She is a postcolonial feminist writer who has depicted and highlighted the hubris of the society. She has not only focused on the extreme form of hate for a particular race in the minds of people, but also shown how hippocratic the society is; a society that forces people to commit to certain relationships, like marriage, even though its not good for their wellbeing. But the idea of being “accepted’ is so potent in peoples lives that they are ready to lose everything, even their own sanity. I enjoyed reading this book, hope you all enjoy it as much!
