Publication: “The Tombs of Atuan” in the Literary Encyclopedia

I have more exciting publication news!81ADO2jTZuL

My entry for Ursula K. LeGuin’s The Tombs of Atuan (the second book in the Earthsea cycle) 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!

Just like the first entry on A Wizard of Earthsea, this 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 get the book on Amazon: The Tombs of Atuan (The Earthsea Cycle, Book 2) (Also available from Amazon.co.uk)
