  • Many things to many people

    The 6 novels and many short stories of le Guin’s Earthsea create a whole world, replete with fables, heroes, politics and change. Change is not limited to Earthsea; in the way that all speculative fiction mirrors the world we live in, Earthsea’s changes reflect the changes occurring in our world. Earthsea can be many things to many people, and although it is billed as young adult fiction, it’s straightforward prose is more reminiscent of Hemingway’s The Old Man and The Sea and the ages of its protagonists and the questions it poses range the gamut of human life spans. This edition carries many notes and essay from le Guin so that we follow the authors voice in exploring and investigating Earthsea until it becomes a familiar and warm guide, her compassion for the characters, the land and the great changes that had to happen illuminating but also clearly connected to challenges we face, both as individuals and whole societies. Le Guin’s writing makes them important; she gives her heroes battles to fight that we believe in and then allows us to choose those battles as our own, too.

    Thanks for your feedback!
