According to Sprague, doubling in Lessing's novels is a perfect correlative for the complexity and contradiction Lessing perceives as central to the private and collective human experience. Her doubles and multiples not only indicate the fracturing or the formation of identity but they also are among the several strategies used to project complex private and societal concerns. This study of Lessing's dialectical imagination extends and revises earlier feminist approaches. Originally published in 1987.

From the very first moment Saratu met Bindul, he made her believed that she was more than any other woman he had ever seen in the world. He bathed her with love, bathed her, bathed her and finally drowned her completely into his love. Saratu loves him with the truest love of her heart. As matter-of-factly, they were head over heels in love. They admired each other, they adored each other, they allured each other, they liked each other, they want each other, they need each other, they beseechingly desired each other and they loved each other like politicians with corruptions. They declared their love for each other and not so long they stood in front of an overfilled church congregation to publicly declare their love for each other in a one-in-town society marriage. They swam in their love and lived very, very comfortable and happily in love. Saratu wasn’t in need of anything, even sex. Bindul gave her all the practical part of love, the love that was made in heaven for a woman, that kind of love that made her feel as though she was the only EVE with the only ADAM in this modern world and she was wholly dependable on it. Like King Solomon to his wives and concubines, Bindul lavished Saratu with the sweetest lovely words and praises. He gave her all that she needed in life. But when Saratu later discovered that her husband was still madly in love with Jimikat, his primeval girlfriend, things wasn’t the same again for her. Their loveliest sex-packed marriage suffered a temporary drought of sex. Saratu first run to her dear friend, Dakmikat for help. Despite doing everything, her husband clung onto Jimikat like a tick to a cow. But at the end, when Bindul brought the two of them together, the problem was solved and Saratu and Jimikat became very, very good friends and lived very happily under the spell of Bindul.

Musing in the Footsteps of Jesus beckons you to interact with the real and imaginary characters involved in events of Jesuss early ministry. Witness the life-changing effect on a tent maker and his two young sons as Jesus receives baptism in the Jordan River accompanied by the voice of God introducing him as his beloved son. Be with Jesus in a cave for forty days, preparing for the attack by Satan and his airborne, warring angels. Marvel at how a bear and an owl contribute to Jesuss survival. Enjoy the sense of humor of the fishermen who joke of the Messiah as their big catch. Later, as Jesuss full-time disciples, they cheerfully confess they are the ones enmeshed in a net. The wedding in Cana turns comical when a renowned chef finds the wine unworthy of his recipes. Jesuss new wine proves to be the best wine ever to touch the gourmets palate. A Pharisee ruler comes to Jesus at night. As the schooled priest asks Jesus of the secrets of heaven, the mans conflicting thoughts reveal his character and spirituality. The woman at Jacobs well appears to be a repentant sinner yearning for a Messiah. The vision Jesus sees of her past explains why he tells her, before all others, that he is the Christ. When a rich man asks Jesus how to get to heaven, Christ answers that he must part with his riches and serve him. The man leaves with a sad countenance. Hear the mystical voice from a whirlwind, see the rich mans fanciful flight on a horse to the moon, and you will understand why he chose to obey Jesus and serve him. This storyteller prays these dreams will increase your hunger for deeper understanding of the Holy Scriptures.

Walter of Châtillon’s Latin epic on the life of Alexander the Great was a twelfth- and thirteenth-century “best-seller:” scribes produced over two hundred manuscripts. The poem follows Alexander from his first successes in Asia Minor, through his conquest of Persia and India, to his progressive moral degeneration and his poisoning by a disaffected lieutenant. The Alexandreis exemplifies twelfth-century discourses of world domination and the exoticism of the East. But at the same time it calls such dreams of mastery into question, repeatedly undercutting as it does Alexander’s claims to heroism and virtue and by extension, similar claims by the great men of Walter’s own generation. This extraordinarily layered and subtle poem stands as a high-water mark of the medieval tradition of Latin narrative literature. Along with David Townsend’s revised translation, this edition provides a rich selection of historical documents, including other writings by Walter of Châtillon, excerpts from other medieval Latin epics, and contemporary accounts of the foreign and “exotic.”
