“Canta la hierba” Doris Lessing denuncia el colonialismo

Este es un libro maravilloso, no podía ser diferente tratándose su autora de nada menos que una galardonada con el Premio Nóbel de Literatura en el 2007, Doris Lessing.  Reconocida como autora británica, en realidad nació en Irán en 1919,  pero pasó su juventud en la antigua Rhodesia a donde sus padres fueron en busca de la prosperidad.  La vida de Lessing está reflejada en sus novelas, porque ella vivió de cerca la segregación racial, pero disfrutó también siendo niña de un continente en que la belleza natural pudo cautivarla tanto y tan permanentemente que lo refleja en sus libros con vivos colores.

“Canta la hierba” fue su primera novela pero no pudo publicarla en el Africa del apartheid  sino hasta que se alejó de su hogar africano, se había casado joven y procreado hijos. Se divorció y se volvió a casar y en algún momento ser marchó a Londres para dedicarse a la escritura y publicar su libro.  “Canta la hierba” es un libro de denuncia sobre el colonialismo en continente negro, sobre las relaciones complicadas de las razas que convivían en Rhodesia, los segregados nativos del lugar tratados como muebles y los blancos y su estrecha mentalidad que como hijos del colonialismo les hace segregar a aquellos con quien comparten la tierra.

La protagonista es una abusiva, frustrada y desecantada de su vida Mary Turner, chica que se ha casado con un pobre de ninguna condición para triunfar en la vida, Dick. Se pensaba la buena mujer que al casarse con él iría a vivir quizá en una plantación como las de los ricos colonos de Rhodesia, pronto la llegada a casa recién casada le vuelve a una realidad abrumadora y frustrante, Dick no tiene nada de lo que pueda decirse futuro y ella se ha casado con un hombre que vivirá con ella en la pobreza y el aburrimiento.

Y aún con su vida de pobretones dueños de granja pero blancos,  se puede Mary hacer de algún criado que les sirva, muchos abandonan la casa de los Turner por no poder soportar a una mujer que los maltrata como aquella, pero todo cambiará con la llegada de Moses un nativo que es servicial, hombre entero y bondadoso que habrá de influir en la historia de tal modo que nos encontraremos (y esto es el comienzo de la novela) con el asesinato de Turner a manos de Moses, a partir de ahí la autora Doris Lessing nos va diciendo cómo ha sido que sucedió semejante calamidad, la relación de una Mary que se deja sorprender por los gestos amables de Moses y que se desprecia por verse influida por un hombre que para ella no debiera ser más que un despreciable exclavo.

Hay que leerla de principio a fin, la historia del matrimonio y el criado nos lleva a las relaciones que se manejaban entre los blancos y negros en medio de la Rhodesia en los años 40, reflejo de todo un continente, donde la vida podía ser realmente lastimera para criados y patronos, una segregación vergonzosa que la autora una testigo directa de la vida africana nos regala con su inagotable talento.  Los personajes nos son retratados con sus complicaciones y mentalidades en un retrato psicológico excepcional.  Lee “Canta la hierba”  pinchando aquí
