This collection of new poems, which have never before appeared in book form, Ms. Le Guin refers to as "a map of my mind." The poems range from creations of her own fantasies to descriptions of deeply felt personal experiences and the landscape and history of Cornwall, visions of New York City, Oregon and the Pacific Coast, discussions of important issues and an appreciation of a variety of cultures and beliefs. Wise, original, witty, Hard Words is a fine successor to her first collection, Wild Angels, and a welcome new volume for her many admirers.

A resident of Portland, Oregon, URSULA K. LE GUIN was born in California, graduated from Radcliffe and earned her master's degree at Columbia University. One of the most distinguished authors of our time and winner of numerous awards, including the National Book Award, the Nebula, and the Hugo, she has written many novels and short stories. Among her best-known books are The Left Hand of Darkness, The Dispossessed and The Beginning Place.
