Read full description of the books:



En midaldrende kvinde gennemlever en identitetskrise den sommer, hvor mand og børn er spredt for alle vinde.

Doris Lessing, der modtog Nobelprisen i litteratur i 2007, har et stort og varieret forfatterskab bag sig. Denne roman udkom første gang i 1973 og er et smukt eksempel på feministisk litteratur, der ikke er væsentligt mærket af tidens tand.

Kate Brown, velklædt, effektiv engelsk overlægefrue og mor til 4 voksne børn, kaster sig ud i et midlertidigt job i en stor international organisation den sommer, hvor ægtemanden fremmer sin karriere med nogle måneder i USA og passer sine små, diskrete affærer med helt unge kvinder, mens børnene går deres egne veje. Senere har Kate en ikke særligt vellykket affære med en meget yngre mand. Hjemme i London giver en mærkelig sygdom og senere bekendtskabet med en ung oprørsk, men usikker pige, Kate ekstra stof til eftertanke.

Selv om bogen hører til blandt de mindst komplicerede i forfatterskabet, kræver den alligevel en del af læseren. Doris Lessing er en meget bevidst og intellektuel forfatter, der afsøger samfundsmønstre og det indviklede, sammensatte menneskelige sind.

I denne roman er hovedpersonen ganske vist en slags talerør for forfatteren, men ikke hendes marionet. Hun fremstår meget overbevisende i sin søgen efter sit inderste væsen.

Der er ikke megen handling i bogen, der for en stor del består af indre monologer, hvor Kate reflekterer over sit liv og sine roller som hustru og mor, hvor hun har undertrykt egne behov i en grad, så hun er blevet væk for sig selv.

Roller, hun viderefører som omsorgsfuld organisator i sommerjobbet og senere over for den unge elsker. En tilbagevendende drøm om en såret sæl, som hun prøver at hjælpe tilbage til dens rette element, symboliserer Kates identitetskrise.

Selv om bogen selvfølgelig bærer præg af den tid, den er skrevet i, er der så megen substans i den, at moderne kvinder ikke vil have problemer med at spejle sig i Kates situation.

Bogen rummer ingen bastante løsninger. Kate vender tilbage til familien som et nyt menneske. Hun er blevet meget klogere på sig selv, men hun er ikke færdig med sin selvransagelse.

Read information about the author

Ebook Sommeren før mørket read Online! Both of her parents were British: her father, who had been crippled in World War I, was a clerk in the Imperial Bank of Persia; her mother had been a nurse. In 1925, lured by the promise of getting rich through maize farming, the family moved to the British colony in Southern Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe). Like other women writers from southern African who did not graduate from high school (such as Olive Schreiner and Nadine Gordimer), Lessing made herself into a self-educated intellectual.

In 1937 she moved to Salisbury, where she worked as a telephone operator for a year. At nineteen, she married Frank Wisdom, and had two children. A few years later, feeling trapped in a persona that she feared would destroy her, she left her family, remaining in Salisbury. Soon she was drawn to the like-minded members of the Left Book Club, a group of Communists "who read everything, and who did not think it remarkable to read." Gottfried Lessing was a central member of the group; shortly after she joined, they married and had a son.

During the postwar years, Lessing became increasingly disillusioned with the Communist movement, which she left altogether in 1954. By 1949, Lessing had moved to London with her young son. That year, she also published her first novel, The Grass Is Singing, and began her career as a professional writer.

In June 1995 she received an Honorary Degree from Harvard University. Also in 1995, she visited South Africa to see her daughter and grandchildren, and to promote her autobiography. It was her first visit since being forcibly removed in 1956 for her political views. Ironically, she is welcomed now as a writer acclaimed for the very topics for which she was banished 40 years ago.

In 2001 she was awarded the Prince of Asturias Prize in Literature, one of Spain's most important distinctions, for her brilliant literary works in defense of freedom and Third World causes. She also received the David Cohen British Literature Prize.

She was on the shortlist for the first Man Booker International Prize in 2005. In 2007 she was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature.
