Dancing at the Edge of the World is a 1989 nonfiction collection by Ursula K. Le Guin. Within the categories, the works are organized chronologically, and are further marked by what Le Guin calls the Guide Ursuline-a system of symbols denoting the main theme of the works. The four themes with which she categorizes the essays are feminism, social responsibility, literature and travel.
Ursula K. Le Guin (Author). Lewis collection and an essay titled "Where Do you Get Your Ideas From". Both readings were informative but the essay was of particularly interest. Le Guin ponders storytelling and women writing in this quick, readable collection, mixed with a few commencement addresses, defenses of her novels, and cultural criticisms. Some essays are certainly stronger than others - I did not find it to be uniformly impressive - but it was an enjoyable introduction to her work and thinking.
