"RIP Ursula K. LeGuin"
 
   NYT Obit

LeGuin's work had a huge effect on me, and I still hold up her Earthsea mythos as being particularly pertinent.

A stately pleasure-dome

Where Alph, the sacred river,
ran
Through caverns measureless to
man
Down to a sunless sea

   Well....this here leaves me in two minds.
On the one...shit.
On the other...88 years old. Perhaps you've earned your rest at that point. Particularly if you've created like she had. I read the Earthsea books, and one or two more, but wow.

"In addition to more than 20 novels, she was the author of a dozen books of poetry, more than 100 short stories (collected in multiple volumes), seven collections of essays, 13 books for children and five volumes of translation, including the Tao Te Ching of Lao Tzu and selected poems by the Chilean Nobel Prize winner Gabriela Mistral. She also wrote a guide for writers."


RIP, and thank you for the hours and hours of pleasure you gave me, and many others.

I was amazed she was a young as she was, frankly. I knew of her parents from my anthropology coursework, primarily for work her father Alfred Kroeber had done in his prime, before the outbreak of WWI.
