18-Nov-13 - Nobel laureate Doris Lessing showed through her space fiction that "all ideologies are deceptive and serve only a few, not people in general’"

Nobel Prize Winner in Literature Doris Lessing passed away yesterday, but her legacy as one of the greatest British writers will live on. A thinker ahead of her time, Lessing’s space fiction, as stated by David Waterman in his book Identity in Doris Lessing’s Space Fiction, “treats the human subject as a political text, on which the dominant culture inscribes its mark, assigning to each the role that s/he is required to fill” and unflinchingly warns that “a society where groups of people form and then oppose one another is a society that is perpetually and hopelessly violent.”
