    Most people know Ursula K. Le Guin for her extraordinary science fiction and fantasy. Fewer know just how pervasive Taoist themes are to so much of her work. And in Lao Tzu: Tao Te Ching, we are treated to Le Guin’s unique take on Taoist philosophy's founding classic. Reflecting more than forty years of Le Guin’s personal study and contemplation, her rendering of the text is a brilliant testament to her deep-seated understanding of Taoist principles and their value for our troubled world today. Avoiding traditional patriarchal interpretations, scholarly fixations, and esotericism, she embues the Tao Te Ching with transformative, awe-inspiring power like no other. Also included are Le Guin’s personal reflections and notes on the text throughout. To anyone who has enjoyed Le Guin’s writing and yearns for a deeper window into her mind—or to all who simply wish to explore the philosophical bedrock that shaped an incredible, historically significant author—Le Guin’s Lao Tzu: Tao Te Ching will be an incomparable treasure.
