Doris Lessing, who has died aged 94, was one of the major fiction writers of the second half of the 20th century and one of the most vividly representative literary figures of our times. She was not a committee woman of letters – far from it – but she stood for what it meant to be a writer throughout that long, noisy "now". Contemporary English writing, she announced coolly to an interviewer, was "small, well-shaped and with too much left out". Nobel prize-winning novelist Doris Lessing has died.

When Doris Lessing won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2007, it seemed that, at last, the highest literary honour was being placed on a woman who has surveyed and judged mankind in the latter half of the 20th century like no other writer. However Doris Lessing was a novelist long before The Golden Notebook, and there is an argument for her early works being her best. The book convincingly encompasses the history of political and cultural ideas in Britain from the 1960s to the end of the century; the corruption and poverty within Zimbabwe (renamed Zimlia) is also ruthlessly exposed. She is unashamedly omniscient in her narration.
