    Ma come fa a scrivere cosí bene al primo romanzo! Brava, bravissima, l'autrice a descrivere la discesa a spirale di questa ragazza, tutto sommato relativamente normale, che commette un errore di valutazione: crede di doversi trovare un marito, come fanno tutti. Errore simmetrico, perché anche lui si innamora dell'idea di avere una moglie. E rotolano, rotolano, rotolano sempre piú in basso, fino all'epilogo finale.

    「我病了好多年啦,」她語氣尖酸說,「病在心裡。在心裡的什麼地方。你知道,這不是病,而是什麼地方,一切都錯了。」摘自多麗絲‧萊辛《野草在歌唱》
    這句話讀起來像誰的風格?……莒哈絲。……其實,這整個故事也「很莒哈絲」……
    所謂「很莒哈絲」的意思是,這故事有幾個重要的結構:一件謀殺案……發生殖民地上……幾個窮苦的白人被困在那裡……讓一個女人不知不覺中陷入絕望的深淵……
    想一想,這個故事讓莒哈絲來寫,會是怎麼樣?很好的問題,可以想好幾天……

    meravigliosa l'ambientazione di questo romanzo e il senso di noia e torpore che si respira nelle pagine. Bello il rapporto, per lo più silenzioso, tra i due protagonisti. Grande scrittura.

    A beautiful and depressing portrayal of a lonely woman in South Africa- very descriptive landscape, typical to Lessing works.

    After all, though I am not impressed by her writing, the book stays in the mind, it makes go back to it and think about the story.

    A very profound narrative and I love to imagine the South Africa thru Lessing's eyes. But I'd say I do expect more from a Nobel laureate. This is what made Lessing a professional writer, now I wanna read her Golden Notebook.
