Doris Lessing's The Golden Notebook

Tapan K. Ghosh (Editor)
Synopsis Doris Lessing's classic work The Golden Notebook (1962) is a pioneering work of feminist consciousness. The book was hailed as the manifesto of the feminist movement; it deeply influenced the imagination and attitude of an entire generation of women. With its unconventional form that reflects a fractured time and a fragmented consciousness, it blends literature, politics, love and a candid discussion of female sexuality. The present book, divided into two sections, is a serious attempt at examining this extraordinary novel from various critical perspectives. The first section introduces Doris Lessing, the novelist, and her work The Golden Notebook with an exhaustive commentary on the text by Tapan Kumar Ghosh. The second section comprises exploratory essays by eminent scholars. The volume is a welcome addition to women’s writing and feminist studies.
