Le Guin, Ursula K.:
The Left Hand of Darkness - Taschenbuch

2003, ISBN: 9780441478125

[ED: Taschenbuch / Paperback], [PU: Ace Books], AUSFÜHRLICHERE BESCHREIBUNG: Ursula K. Le Guin's groundbreaking work of science fiction-winner of the Hugo and Nebula Awards. A lone human ambassador is sent to Winter, an alien world without sexual prejudice, where the inhabitants can change their gender whenever they choose. His goal is to facilitate Winter's inclusion in a growing intergalactic civilization. But to do so he must bridge the gulf between his own views and those of the strange, intriguing culture he encounters... Embracing the aspects of psychology, society, and human emotion on an alien world, The Left Hand of Darkness stands as a landmark achievement in the annals of intellectual science fiction. BUCHBESPRECHUNG: "[A] science fiction masterpiece."- Newsweek "A jewel of a story."-Frank Herbert "As profuse and original in invention as The Lord of the Rings ."-Michael Moorcock "An instant classic."- Minneapolis Star-Tribune "Like all great writers of fiction, Ursula K. Le Guin creates imaginary worlds that restore us, hearts eased, to our own."- The Boston Globe "Stellar...A triumphant return to the magic-drenched world of Earthsea...Le Guin is still at the height of her powers, a superb stylist with a knack for creating characters who are both wise and deeply humane. A major event in fantasy literature."- Publishers Weekly (starred review) "Richly told...Le Guin hasn't lost her touch. She draws us into the magical land and its inhabitants' doings immediately."- Booklist AUSZUG AUS DEM BUCH: Ace Books by Ursula K. Le Guin CHANGING PLANES THE LEFT HAND OF DARKNESS THE OTHER WIND TALES FROM EARTHSEA THE TELLING THE LEFT HAND OF DARKNESS URSULA K. LE GUIN Ursula Kroeber Le Guin , daughter of A. L. Kroeber (anthropologist) and Theodora Kroeber (author), was born in Berkeley, California, in 1929. She attended college at Radcliffe and Columbia, and married C. A. Le Guin in Paris in 1953. The Left Hand of Darkness was awarded both the Nebula and the Hugo awards. With the awarding of the 1975 Hugo and Nebula awards to The Dispossessed , Ursula K. Le Guin became the first author to win both awards twice for novels. CONTENTS INTRODUCTION S CIENCE FICTION IS OFTEN DESCRIBED, AND EVEN DEFINED, as extrapolative. The science fiction writer is supposed to take a trend or phenomenon of the here-and-now, purify and intensify it for dramatic effect, and extend it into the future. "If this goes on, this is what will happen." A prediction is made. Method and results much resemble those of a scientist who feeds large doses of a purified and concentrated food additive to mice, in order to predict what may happen to people who eat it in small quantities for a long time. The outcome seems almost inevitably to be cancer. So does the outcome of extrapolation. Strictly extrapolative works of science fiction generally arrive about where the Club of Rome arrives: somewhere between the gradual extinction of human liberty and the total extinction of terrestrial life. This may explain why many people who do not read science fiction describe it as "escapist," but when questioned further, admit they do not read it because "it's so depressing." Almost anything carried to its logical extreme becomes depressing, if not carcinogenic. Fortunately, though extrapolation is an element in science fiction, it isn't the name of the game by any means. It is far too rationalist and simplistic to satisfy the imaginative mind, whether the writer's or the reader's. Variables are the spice of life. This book is not extrapolative. If you like you can read it, and a lot of other science fiction, as a thought-experiment. Let's say (says Mary Shelley) that a young doctor creates a human being in his laboratory let's say (says Philip K. Dick) that the Allies lost the Second World War let's say this or that is such and so, and see what happens. . . . In a story so conceived, the moral complexity proper to the modern novel need not be sacrificed, nor is there any built-in dead end thought and intuition can move freely within bounds set only by the terms of the experiment, which may be very large indeed. The purpose of a thought-experiment, as the term was used by Schrödinger and other physicists, is not to predict the future-indeed Schrödinger's most famous thought-experiment goes to show that the "future," on the quantum level, cannot be predicted-but to describe reality, the present world. Science fiction is not predictive it is descriptive. Predictions are uttered by prophets (free of charge), by clairvoyants (who usually charge a fee, and are therefore more honored in their day than prophets), and by futurologists (salaried). Prediction is the business of prophets, clairvoyants, and futurologists. It is not the business of novelists. A novelist's business is lying. The weather bureau will tell you what next Tuesday will be like, and the Rand Corporation will tell you what the twenty-first century will be like. I don't recommend that you turn to the writers of fiction for such information. It's none of their business. All they're trying to do is tell you what they're like, and what you're like-what's going on-what the weather is now, today, this moment, the rain, the sunlight, look! Open your eyes listen, listen. That is what the novelists say. But they don't BIOGRAFIE Le Guin, Ursula K.: Ursula K. Le Guin, 1929 in Kalifornien geboren, gehört zu den höchstdekorierten zeitgenössischen Schriftstellerinnen Amerikas. Ihre Romane Winterplanet und Planet der Habenichste wurden jeweils mit dem Hugo und dem Nebula Award als beste Romane des Jahres ausgezeichnet. Mit dem Erdsee-Zyklus schuf sie das herausragendste singuläre Werk der modernen Fantasy. Ihr Gesamtwerk, das auch Gedichte, Kinderbücher und Essays umfaßt, wurde mit allen bedeutenden Genre-Preisen geehrt und war u. a. für den National Book Award, den American Book Award und den Pulitzerpreis nominiert., [SC: 0.00], Neuware, gewerbliches Angebot, H: 191mm, [GW: 191g]
