Read full description of the books Tales From Earthsea:Here, collected together for the first time, are five magical tales of Earthsea, the fantastical realm created by a master storyteller that has held readers enthralled for more than three decades.
The Finder, a novella set a few hundred years before A Wizard of Earthsea, when the Archipelago was dark and troubled, reveals how the famous school on Roke was started.
In The Bones of the Earth the wizards who first taught Ged demonstrate how humility, if great enough, can rein in an earthquake.
Sometimes wizards can pursue alternative careers - and Darkrose and Diamond is also a delightful story of young courtship.
Return to the time when Ged was Archmage of Earthsea in On the High Marsh, a story about the love of power and the power of love.
And Dragonfly, showing how a determined woman can break the glass ceiling of male magedom, provides a bridge - a dragon bridge - between Tehanu and The Other Wind.
This enchanting collection is rounded off with and essay about Earthsea's history, people, languages, literature and magic.
Read information about the authorAs of 2013, Ursula K. Le Guin has published twenty-two novels, eleven volumes of short stories, four collections of essays, twelve books for children, six volumes of poetry and four of translation, and has received many awards: Hugo, Nebula, National Book Award, PEN-Malamud, etc. Her recent publications include the novel Lavinia, an essay collection, Cheek by Jowl, and The Wild Girls. Forthcoming in 2012, Finding My Elegy, New and Selected Poems. She lives in Portland, Oregon.
She is known for her treatment of gender (The Left Hand of Darkness, The Matter of Seggri), political systems (The Telling, The Dispossessed) and difference/otherness in any other form. Her interest in non-Western philosophies is reflected in works such as 'Solitude' and 'The Telling' but even more interesting are her imagined societies, often mixing traits extracted from her profound knowledge of anthropology acquired from growing up with her father, the famous anthropologist, Alfred Krober. The Hainish Cycle reflects the anthropologist's experience of immersing themselves in new strange cultures since most of their main characters and narrators (Le Guin favours the first person narration) are envoys from a humanitarian organization, the Ekumen, sent to investigate or ally themselves with the people of a different world and learn their ways.
