In her first novel The Grass is Singing first published 1950 Doris Lessing begins with a short description of a crime on a farm in Southern Rhodesia now Zimbabwe MURDER MYSTERYBy Special CorrespondentMary Turner wife of Richard Turner a farmer at Ngesi was found murdered on the front veranda of their homestead yesterday morning The houseboy who has been arrested has confessed to the crime No motive has been discovered It is thought he was in search of valuablesFor Lessing the crime itself isn t of interest it seems in some ways a foregone conclusion Instead she focuses on the intertwined hierarchies in Southern Rhodesia race gender class and uses her novelist s lens to dissect these hierarchies She reveals how they are formed what holds them together and the profound toll they take on all who live according to their rules Her first novel is unwavering in its portrayal of the damaging racial class and gender based power dynamics in Southern Rhodesia in the early 20th century It s all the powerful because of Lessing s intimate focus on the psychological toll taken on the three main characters Mary Turner Dick Turner and Moses their African houseboy a title that is difficult to type but that says much about the racial hierarchy in Southern Rhodesia at the time Doris Lessing c 1950Lessing is well known for channeling her personal experiences into her writing Her acute eye and gift for social analysis lend The Grass is Singing its matter of fact style and its psychological acumen Lessing knew about unhappy marriages by living through her parents frustration over their inability to make their maize farm in Southern Rhodesia profitable as well as through her own marriage She understood the particular pressures women in the veldt faced as they struggled to translate their lives on farms in Southern Africa into cultural terms understood by their Edwardian culture Lessing s own experiences of being an outsider observing social conventions that limited women s independence and autonomy fueled the hopeless desperation in her descriptions of Mary Turner She also saw first hand the rigid rules imposed by the white settlers to ensure that their neighbors reinforced white rule They had to treat their African workers as subhuman or face the conseuences social isolation and opprobrium Farm in Southern Rhodesia now ZimbabweAfrican workers and children farmworkers at their compoundMary Turner grew up in a town When young she saw the friction between her mother and father and for that reason never thought much about marrying As an adult she has a job lives in a boarding home for women and enjoys being a friend and a confidante to men and women alike until an overheard conversation between two of her friends leads her to follow a socially acceptable course and get married After a very brief courtship she marries Dick Turner and only then discovers that he is a struggling farmer engaged in series of unprofitable experiments to make money on his farm but on his own terms For example he is reluctant to engage in profitable tobacco farming because of its factory like reuirements as well as its tendency to drain the soil Lessing slowly and painstakingly unfolds the Turners struggles with the land including drought and disease with local white society and its rigid code of conduct with Africans whom they need to work the land but fail to understand or treat like humans and with each other Over time as Mary moves further from her husband and neighbors she eventually begins to see Moses the African who works for her as a houseboy in a different light This shift in their relationship sets into motion the catastrophic events that lead to the novel s conclusion Southern Rhodesia postcard c 1940Countryside of Southern RhodesiaThis is a novel that explores the gaps between individual and social expectations and reality Lessing understands the profound dangers faced by people who lack a fundamental psychological understanding of themselves and each other especially in a society that is built on ineualities She unflinchingly portrays the staggering cost we pay as a society and as individuals when we reinforce a social order built on dehumanization and surface appearances Lessing took her novel s title from Eliot s The Waste Land She includes the relevant passage as an epigraph In this decayed hole among
