About This Book
A comprehensive study guide offering in-depth explanation, essay, and test prep for Doris Lessing’s The Golden Notebook, regarded by The Oxford Companion to English Literature as one of the key texts of the women’s movement of the 1960s. As a uniquely structured four-part novel published in 1962, The Golden Notebook focuses on the idea of fragmentation, both in the structure of the book and the content. Moreover, the novel discusses big picture topics such as mental health, communism, and women’s sexuality. This Bright Notes Study Guide explores the context and history of Lessing’s classic work, helping students to thoroughly explore the reasons it has stood the literary test of time.
