In her Canopus in Argos series, Nobel laureate Lessing creates a "space" fiction universe to metaphorically explore spiritual, cultural and social issues. Inspired by the controversy of the tragic British Antarctic Expedition of 1910, Volume IV is the story of a doomed Planet 8 bravely facing annihilation as glaciers descend upon their settlement; Canopus in Argos: Archives; Vol. 4.
