Doris Lessing ´ 1 READ SUMMARY æ GRUPOSIAM.CO ´ Doris Lessing READ ì The Golden Notebook آنا كاتبة ومؤلفة لرواية حققت نجاحًا باهرًا، تحتفظ في الوقت الحالي بمفكرات أربعة، في واحدة من هذه المفكرات المفكرة السوداء تعيد آنا النظر في التجربة الأفريقية التي ع. Dear class Welcome to an exclusive Goodreads seminar on Doris Lessing s classic 1962 novel The Golden Notebook Let s start with a uiz shall we 1 What s the best reason for reading this bookA It s a feminist classic and still speaks to feminists male and female todayB It s a seminal contemporary novel and its challenging structure there s a traditional novel about a London writer named Anna Wulf interspersed with four notebooks that individually address Anna s various interests growing up in Africa Communism trying to write a second book after a very successful first one daily life dreams and psychoanalysis still feels bold half a century laterC Lessing won the Nobel Prize for Literature and her crotchety response to journalists when she heard about it remains pricelessD The book addresses big uestions like What happens when we become disillusioned with our political ideals How do we reconcile the various parts of ourselves sexual being responsible parent sympathetic partner loyal friend concerned global citizen Can we integrate them How do we define a good person and why is a good man so damn hard to findE All of the above Answer E2 It s a long book well over 600 pages Does it need to be that longA Yes Every sentence is perfect There s no repetition It s very tidy I don t know why you re even asking this uestion Shame on youB God no But neither art nor life are clean with all the edges folded neatly Lessing understands this Art can get messy reuiring sketches multiple drafts thumb prints in the margins Family life can seethe with resentments and bitterness like a pot that s boiled over on the stove And sex and relationships Sheesh Let s be honest We re not always rational in those departments We can find ourselves dating or sleeping with the same sort of person for all sorts of f cked up reasons We make mistakes That s the human condition So writing about all of that has to be messy too Besides it seems that Lessing penned the well written novel before this She s trying something new C I suppose not But imagine being her editor I can see Lessing fighting to include even the difficult earnest rambling passages And there are uite a fewD It s not really that long And flipping back to the contents page which tells you how long each chapter is is handy Pro tip the chapters tend to get shorter as the book progresses And there are playful connections BETWEEN the sections which turn you into a literary detective It s sort of fun Answer B half marks for C andor D3 This book has a reputation for being serious Is there any humourA No Lessing deals with Communism art a possible nervous breakdown class colonialism in Africa and the uneasy war between the sexes in the 1940s and 50s Those are serious subjects B Um you re in the literature section The humour section is in another part of the storeC So now you re in the humour section I recommend Amy Poehler s Yes Please and Mindy Kaling s Why Not Me They re both funny but they re also very real oh sorryD Hell yes There are a couple of hilarious scenes of Anna meeting with TV and movie people who want to adapt her best selling first novel for another medium and of course have no idea what her book s about and want to completely alter it into something sanitized and safe And there are some horrible funny examples of earnest Communist themed fiction that Anna has to consider for publication which contributes to her eventually leaving the party Answer D4 What s the most shocking seuence to a reader todayA The scenes where Annaalter ego Ella thinks only of pleasing a man B The continual discussion about the lack of real men and the dismissive attitude towards homosexualityC The tampon scene D The stilted conversations between Anna and her friend Molly E The frank talk about vaginal vs clitoral orgasms and having orgasms while in love with one s partner Answer Shocking is a strong word but any of the above were surprising in different ways5 Will you read books by Doris LessingA Yes I want to read her five novel Children Of Violence series which seems to deal with some of the same themes as The Golden Notebook I m also keen to read her popular first book The Grass Is Singing which is set in Southern Rhodesia now Zimbabwe and put her on the map I m pretty sure there are parallels between this book and the fictional book Anna wrote in NotebookB Yes I m moderately curious about her science fiction Clearly her uest for answers extended beyond our planet But her five volume Canopus In Argos series is hard to find even in good bookstores and libraries Fun fact she collaborated with Philip Glass on operas based on two of these booksC Yes Since The Golden Notebook deals with reality vs art I m curious about the facts of Lessing s life which she revealed in a series of memoirs and autobiographies Note Lessing called her 1974 sci fi dystopia Memoirs Of A Survivor an attempt at an autobiography D Yes Lessing also published several volumes of short stories most famously To Room Nineteen which deals with open relationships another theme of this book Lessing even wrote books under a pseudonym see The Diaries Of Jane SomersE No This book gave me a headache and I found the central character a whiny privileged white woman going on about first world problems Answer A B C and D are all fine And I totally understand E Enjoy

Doris Lessing ´ 1 READ SUMMARY æ GRUPOSIAM.CO ´ Doris Lessing READ ì The Golden Notebook أما المفكرة الزرقاء فتسجل فيها آنا يومياتها، وأخيرًا تحاول آنا، التي تهوى كاتبًا أمريكيًا ويتهددها خطر الإصابة بالجنون، أن تجمع خيوط المفكرات الأربعة في مفكرة ذهبي. Art is the mirror of our betrayed ideals page 385 Still under the effects of the inebriating The Brothers K I thought the best way to overcome a book hungover was to get drunk again Reckless and foolish I knowMy head still spinning around and my heart wrenched into a tight ball as I write these lines The Golden notebook is not a kind bookIt has challenged my patience and tolerance with its apparent non direction I have even despised Anna the narrator of the story thinking her naive selfish and snobbishBut being a woman who dwells in constant contradiction I have irrevocably fallen under the spell of Lessing Anna s radical voice A woman writer and mother who says the unsayable thinks the unthinkable and puts it all down in her notebooks in all its raw emotional and intellectual chaosFour Notebooks pouring with self contempt full of disillusionment tolls for searching clues in her past in order to reconcile her unbearably miserable present The black recalls Anna s youth in wartime Rhodesia her initial involvement with the Communist Party and how her early experiences served as material for her later successful novel Also a retrospective insight in which Anna can t neither recognize herself nor her ingenuous expectations on women s independence and liberation What business has a novelist to cling to the memory of a smile or a look knowing so well the complexities behind them page 115 The red portrays her political doubts with shocking power and blistering honesty threading radical exploration of communism together with Anna s growing need for truth seeking rather than political ideologyI found her growing estrangement with The Party especially poignant when she starts feeling dubious about ends justifying means and the cynicism of some comrades Yet why do I have a home at all Because I wrote a book I am ashamed of and it made a lot of money Luck luck that s all And I hate all that my home my possessions my rights And yet come to the point where I m uncomfortable I fall back on it like everyone else Mine Property Possessions page 356 The yellow notebook was the one that struck me the most but at the same time also shined out with unexpected recognition Anna s futile effort to write as a third person naming her creation Ella in an attempt to distance herself from the inadeuacy and constant failures of her relationships with men reminded me strongly of DH Lawrence s reflections on sexuality morality and motherhoodAnna s reaffirmed feelings of independence reacting against the vanity egoism and insecurities of her usually married male partners contrast with her constant displays of traditional female behavior expecting to stop being the mistress to become the wife It all sounded so real and sincere to me that I felt Anna s sufferings and sorrows as my own I am unhappy because I have lost some kind of independence some freedom but my being free has nothing to do with writing a novel it has to do with my attitude towards a man and that has been proved dishonest because I am in pieces page 283 Finally the blue notebook appears as an accurate account of everyday life where intertwined switches of mood rambling thoughts and semi deranged descriptions of dreams become a crude testimony of existential doubts But isn t there something wrong with the fact that my sleep is satisfying exciting enjoyable than anything that happens to me awake page 217 Defragmented pieces of unconsciousness create the most truthful and frightening image of a woman who uestions the different versions of herself to find her long lost wholenessDoris Lessing addresses the conflicts between the maternal and erotic life of the difficulties to conduct a career or at least to try to while raising a child of the letdown that comes along with exploration of political ideologies of the hardships of facing a mental breakdown of the frustration of being a liberated woman but still be dependant on a masculine presence in her life And she does it all looking at the reader straight in the eye without blinkingAnd don t get me wrong I don t see Lessing as some sort of personal feminist hero I don t think that s the point But then as now being in my early thirties this novel has guided me towards which uestions to ask and which answers are better left unsoughtEverything Life love death the myriad beings buried deep inside me Everything has become Golden clear Because there has to be a crack in everything so that the light gets inThe failures and inadeuacies of my pastThe bleakness of my upcoming futureThe beauty and the futility of it all so worth the effort Why I Love My Mummy still Why I Love My Daddy spinning around and my heart wrenched into a tight ball as I write these lines The Golden notebook is not a
