The closest you can get probably is grok.traversable:
but than will need you to have methods which are defined on your Model
class instead of on your view.

You can than add an adapter for string-like objects, which returns the
things as-is, like

class MyStringViewer(grok.View)

    def render(self):
        return self.context

[*] completely untested code here, but it might work.
