Ursula Kroeber Le Guin ['ɜrsələ ˈkroʊbər ləˈgwɪn][1]​ [2]​ fue una escritora estadounidense. Publicó obras dentro de numerosos géneros, principalmente ciencia ficción y fantasía, aunque también escribió poesía, libros infantiles y ensayos, e incluso tradujo obras de otros autores del chino y el español al inglés.

Sin embargo, Le Guin debe su fama al numeroso caudal de libros y cuentos de ciencia ficción y fantasía publicados a lo largo de su dilatada carrera y fue galardonada con varios premios Hugo y Nébula. Fue la primera mujer galardonada con el título de Gran Maestra por la Asociación de escritores de ciencia ficción y fantasía de Estados Unidos . Se consideraba a sí misma como una mujer feminista y taoísta[3]​ y en sus novelas aparecen a menudo ideas anarquistas.

„Creo que jalear la competición por el poder lo devalúa todo. Que es mejor la colaboración, el trabajo en equipo. Aunque es verdad que las sociedades que piensan como yo, cuando encuentran a las otras, mueren.“

—  Ursula K. Le Guin, libro Four Ways to Forgiveness

"A Man of the People", p. 140
Four Ways to Forgiveness (1995)
Contexto: “Lines and colors made with earth on earth may hold knowledge in them. All knowledge is local, all truth is partial,” Havzhiva said with an easy, colloquial dignity that he knew was an imitation of his mother, the Heir of the Sun, talking to foreign merchants. “No truth can make another truth untrue. All knowledge is a part of the whole knowledge. A true line, a true color. Once you have seen the larger patttern, you cannot go back to seeing the part as the whole."

„We don’t live in order to die, we live in order to live.“

—  Ursula K. Le Guin

Contexto: Belief in heaven and hell is a big deal in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, and some forms of doctrinaire Buddhism. For the rest of us it’s simply meaningless. We don’t live in order to die, we live in order to live.

„My imagination makes me human and makes me a fool; it gives me all the world, and exiles me from it.“

—  Ursula K. Le Guin

"The Creatures on My Mind" in Unlocking the Air and Other Stories (1996), p. 65

„The artist deals in what cannot be said in words. The artist whose medium is fiction does this in words.“

—  Ursula K. Le Guin

Introduction to The Left Hand of Darkness (1976)
Contexto: The artist deals in what cannot be said in words. The artist whose medium is fiction does this in words. The novelist says in words what cannot be said in words.

„Great artists make the roads; good teachers and good companions can point them out. But there ain't no free rides, baby.“

—  Ursula K. Le Guin, libro The Language of the Night

The Language of the Night (1979)
Contexto: I have never found anywhere, in the domain of art, that you don't have to walk to. (There is quite an array of jets, buses and hacks which you can ride to Success; but that is a different destination.) It is a pretty wild country. There are, of course, roads. Great artists make the roads; good teachers and good companions can point them out. But there ain't no free rides, baby. No hitchhiking. And if you want to strike out in any new direction — you go alone. With a machete in your hand and the fear of God in your heart.

„We live in capitalism. Its power seems inescapable; so did the divine right of kings.“

—  Ursula K. Le Guin

National Book Awards, November 2014 https://www.newyorker.com/books/page-turner/national-book-awards-ursula-le-guin
Contexto: I think hard times are coming, when we will be wanting the voices of writers who can see alternatives to how we live now, and can see through our fear-stricken society and its obsessive technologies, to other ways of being. And even imagine some real grounds for hope. We will need writers who can remember freedom: poets, visionaries—the realists of a larger reality. Right now, I think we need writers who know the difference between production of a market commodity and the practice of an art. The profit motive is often in conflict with the aims of art. We live in capitalism. Its power seems inescapable; so did the divine right of kings. … Power can be resisted and changed by human beings; resistance and change often begin in art, and very often in our art—the art of words. I’ve had a long career and a good one, in good company, and here, at the end of it, I really don’t want to watch American literature get sold down the river.... The name of our beautiful reward is not profit. Its name is freedom.
