    EXTRACT FROM WALKING IN CORNWALL
     

    The track’s a dry streambed. Little signs
    point softly, rain and weather-faded,
    whisper: Men-an-Tol.

     The ring is in the valley
     the door is in the valley
     the valley is the mother

     Round door
     open mouth
     hollow thing

     Time passes through time’s circle

     The mother wears this ring

    What is the marrow of this bone?

     Down in the hollow valley
     come be born
     of stone

    O it is the quietest place,
    the shallow valley, Men-an-Tol.




     
     

    Earthsea: The Earthsea Novels of Ursula Le Guin


    ....

    by Jeremy Mark Robinson

    Ursula K. Le Guin’s Earthsea books consist of A Wizard of Earthsea, The Tombs of Atuan, The Farthest Shore, Tehanu, Tales From Earthsea and The Other Wind. There are short stories too, which explore aspects of the Earthsea cosmos.
    This’s some of the finest writing in contemporary fantasy fiction. A rock-solid prose style, clear, earthy, sensual, simple, very poetic, and such a pleasure to read. In the Earthsea  books, Le Guin is absolutely in control, at the top of her game. She is a master storyteller. There isn’t any fantasy writing better than this. One gets the impression that the narrator of her books is a strong personality, an independent thinker, very tough and worldly wise, honest and humble, and also compassionate. The story, in the first book, A Wizard of Earthsea, of how young Ged becomes a wizard on the wizard island of Roke, is as good any you’ll find of an apprenticeship in magic and shamanism. Le Guin’s prose is totally confident as she depicts how the peasant boy from the sticks and the wrong side of the tracks becomes one of the most powerful wizards in the Roke School (and ultimately the greatest mage of them all).
     

    Jeremy Robinson's books include Glorification: Religious Abstraction in Renaissance and 20th Century Art (1990), Rimbaud (1992), Lawrence Durrell (1995) and Detonation Britain: Nuclear War in the UK (1997). He edits two magazines, Passion and Pagan America (a journal of American poetry).
