Ursula K. LeGuin, A Wizard of Earthsea

Ursula K. LeGuin, A Wizard of Earthsea (part 1 of the Earthsea Cycle)


(中文译本:蔡美玲 译 ~ 马爱农 / 周莉  译

Ursula Le Guin, who passed away this year, is one of the most famous writers of fantasy fiction in English. She is best known for her Earthsea series (地海传奇) and her science fiction novels The Left Hand of Darkness and The Dispossessed. Much of her writing has feminist themes, and she was heavily influenced by Daoism (道家思想) and cultural anthropology. The first novel in the Earthsea series, The Wizard of Earthsea, is a hero narrative about a young wizard coming of age.
