“Celebrated novelist Le Guin (1929–2018) receives a posthumous spotlight on her expansive poetic oeuvre in this excellent volume. Bloom’s thoughtful introduction traces the influence of Taoism in her poems, highlighting recurring themes of elegy, nature, and desire, and drawing useful parallels between Le Guin’s poems and her prose works. As Bloom notes, ‘In Le Guin’s poetry as in her fiction, not only a violated earth cries out but all its victims—humans, animals, forests, individual trees—lamenting the lull that seems final.’ . . . This imaginative and insightful collection is a worthy tribute to the poetic life’s work of an important American writer.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)
