Description
Long known for her tales of other worlds, for which she has earned the National Book Award, the Kafka Award, and numerous Hugo and Nebula Awards, Ursula Le Guin started her writing career as a poet. Finding My Elegy distills her life's work, presenting the best from her six earlier volumes of poetry since 1959 and introducing a powerful, transcendent group of poems from the first decade of the 21st century. The 70 selected and 77 new poems consider war and creativity, motherhood and the natural world; they glint with vivid beauty and humor as they reckon the full measure of a life, as in "Offering," from Wild Angels: "I made a poem going / to sleep last night, woke / in sunlight, it was clean forgotten. / If it was any good, gods / of the great darkness / where sleep goes and farther / death goes, you not named, / then as true offering / accept it."

"She never loses touch with her reverence for the immense what is."óMargaret Atwood
