I hate it when characters are made to act like idiots for the sake of increasing romantic tension. The third story, The Bones of the Earth , was a good one. The story is mostly told from the perspective of the master that Ogion was apprenticed to, and I think it left me with more questions about Ogion than answers, but I really enjoyed it and I wish it had been longer and more detailed.
The fourth story, On the High Marsh , introduces us to an adult sorcerer who seems to be half out of his mind. Eventually we learn his story and it ties to a familiar character from the main books.
I enjoyed this story and I had fun trying to guess what was up with the sorcerer. Like most of the main characters throughout this series, she has power. I really liked this one, and I look forward to seeing what happens to Dragonfly next. We have Ged in the first book, Tenar in the second, and Arren in the third. Then in this anthology we have Otter, Diamond, and Dragonfly. Each of the characters were distinctive and interesting, and the stories were all different. Only one more book to go!

I've been putting this one off for a while, because I knew it was a collection of stories versus an actual novel. I'm generally much pickier about short story collections and have a harder time keeping my interest in them. This was really well done though. Parts were less interesting than others, but overall the quality was on par with the first four books of Earthsea. It gets away from the harsh realism of the last book, Tehanu, and it gets back to the magical mysticism of the original Earthsea I've been putting this one off for a while, because I knew it was a collection of stories versus an actual novel.
It gets away from the harsh realism of the last book, Tehanu, and it gets back to the magical mysticism of the original Earthsea trilogy. The history of Earthsea was really interesting and added a lot of depth to the world and it's characters. The only story I actually had difficulty getting into was the first one, but the rest were brilliant.

Back then, I plowed through the original trilogy and was sort of surprised by Tehanu , which I found kind of slow. I told myself, "Newer Le Guin just isn't my thing. They're beautiful a My Earthsea experience was a long time ago--it's been at least 10 years since I read any of them.
They're beautiful and important, all thoughtfully exploring issues of gender, different kinds of power learned versus experienced , and love. I'm even convinced that my Tehanu impressions need to be adjusted, and I'll go back and reread it now that I finished these stories.

Lo que lo hace infinitamente mejor. Mar 13, M. Johnson rated it really liked it.
Ursula Le Guin is a very good writer and the 'Earthsea' series of books are worthwhile reading. These short stories which are set at various times throughout the history of her invented world often relate to an event sometimes only touched on in the other books. We also meet some of the characters from the five main books in these tales.
It also includes the story 'Dr Ursula Le Guin is a very good writer and the 'Earthsea' series of books are worthwhile reading.
It also includes the story 'Dragonfly' which forms a bridge between 'Tehanu' 4th book and 'The Other Wind' 6th book. I read 'Tales of Earthsea' as my finale and can't honestly say I experienced any real difficulty with 'The Other Wind' because of this. Whilst I still think the original three books remain the best, the whole series is most definitely worth reading.
Oct 18, Derek rated it liked it Shelves: Overall Rating: The effort is very laudable, but the results weren't all that. I mean, yes, in regards to giving us a broader feel of Earthsea, she did a remarkable job, but as for reeling us in, getting us to feel for the characters, capture empathy and all that, it wasn't really working. Most of these stories were disjointed, or I never really got into them un Overall Rating: Most of these stories were disjointed, or I never really got into them until the end.
This didn't do its predecessors justice. I'm hoping The Other Wind does. Anyway, here are my individual ratings for each story: The Finder: Apr 08, Mir rated it really liked it.
Bu kesin. Herkese keyifli okumalar! On the whole, a pretty interesting collection of stories. I'm still uneasy about the fact that LeGuin felt the need to go back and change Earthsea, make it more "politically correct"- but, if you can get over that, her writing is still quite good.
All along, I cherished a foolis On the whole, a pretty interesting collection of stories. What happened to him after he left to be a sorcerer for the Lady of O, I wonder? In her new books, she makes it seem as if people- not only students from the Great House, but strangers, guests as well- often walk in the Grove with the Patterner.
If I remember right, in the old books the way into the grove was known only to those who had won their staffs, and frequented only by the Masters. Sep 05, Oleksandr Zholud rated it liked it Shelves: This is a collection of short stories set in Earthsea universe. They span the period from several centuries prior to the first volume A Wizard of Earthsea to years after the fourth Tehanu.
However, after thinking it out I guess , the author added the story how the academy was founded, how women were expunged. You may add and add the layers of complexity the way you like, for this is your world. The book consists of 5 stories and as an addition a history of Earthsea.
Tales from Earthsea (Earthsea Cycle, #5) by Ursula K. Le Guin
The stories are: Jun 01, R. Scot Johns rated it it was ok Shelves: The more I read Le Guin the less I like her writing. She has no sense of pacing or plotting whatsoever, leaving the single "event" of each book or story until the last few pages, reached only after a slow and tedious preamble in which the characters sit around doing nothing as if that's a plot point or an action of its own , and somehow we're supposed to identify with them in their non-quest for nothing.
Some of her characters show promise, but we never see it come to true fruition. I appreciate her Taoist outlook, but the Tao is not an anti-action philosophy, it is not one of sitting immobile waiting for something to happen to you, but one of movement and motion with the flow of the world around one, of graceful action in concert with the natural order.
Reading itself is an action, an event, the turning of each page a change from what has been into a realm of what is possible to become. Le Guin is satisfied with simply leaving what is as it is and describing it.
What happens at the end is thrown in almost as an afterthought, as a way of saying that she's finished writing for now. This collection of five short stories also exemplifies perfectly the reason I so dislike short fiction.
There is no time to develop characters not that she really ever does that in her longer works , or get to know them or their motivations. There is only a hint of promise, left unfulfilled. Some of this was ok other parts were torture to read so boring I found myself skimming. I had already bought this whole series or there is no way I would finish reading it but just one more to go.

About Ursula K. Ursula K. Le Guin published twenty-two novels, eleven volumes of short stories, four collections of essays, twelve books for children, six volumes of poetry and four of translation, and has received many awards: She lived in Portland, Orego Ursula K. She lived in Portland, Oregon. Her interest in non-Western philosophies was reflected in works such as 'Solitude' and 'The Telling' but even more interesting are her imagined societies, often mixing traits extracted from her profound knowledge of anthropology acquired from growing up with her father, the famous anthropologist, Alfred Kroeber.
The Hainish Cycle reflects the anthropologist's experience of immersing themselves in new strange cultures since most of their main characters and narrators Le Guin favoured the first person narration are envoys from a humanitarian organization, the Ekumen, sent to investigate or ally themselves with the people of a different world and learn their ways.
