These poems are probably of the most interest to readers who already enjoy Le Guin's works of fantasy. Many of the poems are grounded in the natural world, but have an otherworldly tone that gives an impression of the supernatural. Feminist themes also run throughout the word, and the most successful poems in the collection fuse a sense of the elements with feminist voices, creating a lasting impression of permanence that serves to strengthen the work as a whole. For the most part, this is also one of those collections where the poems work together to create a greater whole, but would not necessarily mean so much when taken separately. ( )
