Le Guin Ursula

The Left Hand of Darkness

Оценка: 4.8 (50)
Serie: Hainish cycle
Genre: fantasy
Nebula Best Novel winner (1970)Hugo Best Novel winner (1970) The Left Hand of Darkness  explores the themes of sexual identity, incest, xenophobia, fidelity, and betrayal in a tale of an Earth ambassador, Genly Ai, who is sent to the planet of Gethen, whose inhabitants are androgynous. Through his relationship with a native, Estraven, Ai gains understanding both of the consequences of his fixed sexual orientation and of Gethenian life. As in many of her works, Le Guin incorporates a social message in her science fiction tale. Scholes feels that the great power of the book comes from the way it interweaves all its levels and combines all its voices and values into an ordered, balanced, whole.
