Ursula K. Le Guin: A Poet’s Legacy


Ursula K. Le Guin is best known for her groundbreaking, visionary, bestselling science fiction and fantasy novels, but throughout her life, she wrote, read, and believed in the power of poetry. When Le Guin brought the manuscript for her final collection, So Far So Good, to Copper Canyon Press, she did so with faith in the nonprofit, independent publisher to do justice to her poetry. Le Guin passed away in January of 2018, just days after she sent her last edits to what would be her final poetry book. This tremendous loss strengthened Copper Canyon’s resolve to do all they could to lift up the poetic legacy of this essential American writer.
