  • Profound and thought provoking

    This short story was my first time reading Ursula LeGuin. The story begins with an eloquent depiction of this ideal little town preparing for a festival. Everything seems perfect, yet there is mention of imperfections, but they are depicted as minor and not having serious negative consequence. The juxtaposition of this pristine society created by LeGuin to its deep, dark, hidden secret is a clear parallel to humanity's natural tendency to establish a sense of superiority at the expense of another person or group. LeGuin had no spefici injustice for her story, which is part of its beauty. This story can be applied to a wide ovarievariety of situations with which we are all familiar. With a lot of the tensions going on right now relating to race/gender/sexuality/politics/nationality, this short story felt particularly poignant.

    Thanks for your feedback!
