Great News!

GUEST_46fb1252-62a0-473c-9a91-a5ed21a37f2b

I am excited to share with you that my entry for Ursula K. Le Guin’s The Other Wind has been published in the Literary Encyclopedia!

The article is available now, but unfortunately it is a subscription service. Check with your local institutions to see if they have access!

In summary, the entry gives an overview of the plot of the work, discusses the cultural climate around its publication, summarizes the critical response to the work, and then traces a few key themes.

This is one of my favorite series, so it was a joy to revisit the book. The whole process was a fun experience, and one that I hope to repeat soon!

You can find the book on Amazon: The Other Wind (Earthsea Cycle) (and on Amazon.co.uk)
