Ursula Le Guin 娥苏拉·勒瑰恩

She was born in Berkeley, California in 1929. After graduating from Radcliff College, she took an M.A. degree at Columbia University. Her writings force us to re-examine many of the things that we once took for granted, like our cities, our political and social structures, etc.

She began writing during the 1950s, but not until the ‘60s did she begin publishing. Le Guin's work has appealed to a wider audience than science fiction fans. Bringing a social scientist's eye and a feminist's sensibility to science fiction, she has employed this speculative genre to criticize contemporary civilization.

Many of her stories—like “The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas” (1974 Hugo Award)—create complex imaginary civilizations, envisioned with anthropological authority. Le Guin has also written poetry and juvenile fiction, including the Earthsea [video-2] trilogy, Wizard of Earthsea [video-2] (1968), The Tombs of Atuan [video-2] (1971), and The Farthest Shore [video-2] (1972), which rank among the classics of modern children's literature. She lives in Porland, Oregon.

In an interview with Larry McCaffery the author explains why she likes the science fiction form. She says: “Science fiction allows me to help people get out of their cultural skins and into the skins of other beings. In that sense science fiction is just a further extension of what the novel has traditionally been. In most fiction the author tries to get into the skin of another person; in science fiction you are often expected to get into the skin of another person from another culture.
