Immense talent with respect to the use of language to evoke images and emotions

Best known as an award winning writer of science fiction and fantasy, Ursula K. Le Guin is also an accomplished poet. "Incredible Good Fortune" is the latest volume of her verse to see print and continues to document her immense talent with respect to the use of language to evoke images and emotions within her reader's 'theatre of the mind' through the use of free verse expression. Poetry enthusiasts in general, and Ursula K. Le Guin's legions of fans in particular, will want to avail themselves of a copy of "Incredible Good Fortune". 'Waking in April': Drifting on the birdsong river/between no light and light/and the sleep of a man and a cat,/I wear the soft old shirt/my mother made me seventy years ago,/winter coat, wedding gown./I wonder, as it wears away to rags/and gauze, will there be a mirror/to see the naked soul in,/or only an unraveling of shadow/as the day widens/and things grow clearer.
