Synopsis: "She never loses touch with her reverence for the immense what is." — Margaret Atwood

Though internationally known and honored for her imaginative fiction, Ursula K. Le Guin started out as a poet, and since 1959 has never ceased to publish poems. Finding My Elegy distills her life's work, offering a selection of the best from her six earlier volumes of poetry and introducing a powerful group of poems, at once earthy and transcendent, written in the first decade of the twenty-first century.

The fruit of over a half century of writing, the seventy selected and seventy-seven new poems consider war and creativity, motherhood and the natural world, and glint with humor and vivid beauty. These moving works of art are a reckoning with a whole life.

From the Back Cover: THE DEFINITIVE COLLECTION FROM A RENOWNED AMERICAN WRITER
At the Center

If the intrepid hero with his flashlight
should get through the trashy
outskirts to the door to the corridors that
wind and clamber in my mind, and force
his bright lightbeam through crumbled
intentions and forgotten passions encumbering
attics and blind basements, and get finally
to the oldest, inmost chamber, he will find
no minotaur, nothing frightening,
nothing even to shine his light on,
only the deep smell of dry grass
and dry adobe of an August hillside
when you lie down on it face down
breathing into and out of that one place
in the long, kind, warm dusk
after sunset and before the stars.
