Abstract

The Grass is Singing is the novel written by Doris Lessing which was a successful debut novel, published in 1950. The novel presents the vivid account of the social life of the people living there and deals with the racial politics between the whites and the blacks in that country. The novel is indeed a brilliant exploration of the oppressed and the oppressor evoking an incredible sense of place. This paper is an attempt to understand how the novel relates to the story of a white couple but narrates the social life of both the communities, the white settlers and the black African native with the deep-rooted prejudices and bias against each other. Also, this study attempts to understand how the novel The Grass is Singing is a bleak and terrifying analysis of a failed marriage, the febrile neurosis of white sexuality, and the fear of black power and energy that Lessing saw as underlying the white colonial experience of Africa.

Keywords: Natives, Colonialism, African, oppressors, Moses, Rhodesia
