schema:description"Dancing with Dragons brings together for the first time the various strands of Le Guin criticism to show how the author's dialogue with the critics has informed and influenced her work and her own critical stance. Well-known literary critics such as Robert Scholes, Fredric Jameson, and Harold Bloom have declared Le Guin to be a major voice in American letters. This volume examines how that reputation developed."@en
schema:description"As an academically trained critic in her own right, Le Guin has never shied from critical confrontation, but she prefers discussion to warfare. For thirty years, she has maintained a dialogue with her critics, exploring with them her changing views on feminism, environmentalism, and utopia. A writer of realistic fiction, historical fiction, science fiction, children's literature, fantasy, poetry, reviews, and critical essays, Le Guin challenges genre classifications and writes what she will."@en
