Literature Cambridge: Doris Lessing
Doris Lessing Course
Doris Lessing is one of the most important British writers of recent years. She was described by Margaret Drabble as ‘the kind of writer who changes people’s lives’, and in 2007 she was awarded the Nobel Prize. Like Virginia Woolf, Doris Lessing is highly perceptive of the history of her times, recording their major events through the eyes of her female protagonists.
In this course, you will study four of Doris Lessing’s most interesting novels, exploring both her realistic and non-realistic writing techniques to represent women’s perception of reality in its changing historical context.
The live online courses include four lectures and seminars on Thursdays, fortnightly, starting 14th September. For tickets and more information, click here.
