Read full description of the books:



Alice Mellings, una giovane di origine borghese impegnata da anni in una militanza al di fuori dei partiti politici tradizionali, è l'animatrice di una comunità di occupanti abusivi che si sono insediati in una casa abbandonata di Londra. Alice non è un leader, ma un'organizzatrice straordinaria: sistema la casa restituendola a uno stato di abitabilità, trova i soldi che servono per la sopravvivenza sua e degli altri, interviene a sedare conflitti, insomma diventa un elemento indispensabile nella vita collettiva. Alice potrebbe anche accontentarsi di questa vita ai minimi termini, di questa lotta quotidiana che si fa gioco di scaltrezza o di disperata affermazione del proprio diritto a esistere, ma all'interno del gruppo nascono tensioni verso azioni più clamorose e un impegno più definito all'interno di organizzazioni terroristiche o spionistiche dalle sigle note e accreditate. E' la fine di una faticosa armonia: l'apertura all'esterno spinge i compagni verso destini diversi, in cui il velleitarismo si fa dramma, mentre Alice, la "brava", si avvia verso un futuro dominato dall'ombra incombente dell'eversione in grande stile.
Perché questa donna generosa, attenta custode di quei valori quasi invisibili di cui giorno dopo giorno si nutre ogni comunità umana, aderisce alla lotta armata? Doris Lessing ci racconta la storia di Alice e dei suoi compagni cercando di darsi una risposta a interrogativi tuttora aperti. La risposta non è un'analisi politica né una ricostruzione storica, ma un'ipotesi romanzesca, un tentativo di uscire dalle categorie regressive e ottundenti della fantasy (buono-cattivo, amico-nemico), che a lungo si sono sostituite all'esercizio della ragione, per restituire le persone e i fatti a un'interpretazione umana. Ora, dopo anni di lutti, fanatismi, farneticazioni e intransigenze, forse è da un pensiero aperto alla pietas e soprattutto dalla letteratura - come dimostra questa Brava terrorista - che possiamo attenderci i primi tentativi di comprendere, l'apertura di uno spazio della riflessione, la promessa di una catarsi.

Read information about the author

Ebook La brava terrorista 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.
