What does Arha mean when she says: "You know everything, wizard. But I know one thing—the one true thing! Why does Arha let Sparrowhawk live? Why does Arha bring Sparrowhawk to the Undertomb? What is the significance of Arha's dream of the birds? When Arha says: "The gods are dead, the gods are dead," what is Sparrowhawk's response? Why can't Sparrowhawk tell Tenar how he found her name? How does Tenar's decision to go with Sparrowhawk set them both free?

What does Ged tell Tenar when she says: "The evil must be paid for. I am not free"? Why does Le Guin limit the dwellings of the dark powers to a single location in her fantasy world?

Le Guin emphasizes the Equilibrium of dark and light forces throughout the Earthsea Cycle. Does Le Guin justify Ged's argument that the dark powers should not be "denied or forgotten? How do the sentences that describe the small evils that exist in the world add to this argument? Why does Le Guin make her dark forces nameless in a world where magic and power revolve around names?

The Tombs of Atuan

Why do you think Le Guin describes the dark powers as "holy Powers"? Book 3: The Farthest Shore About the Book In this third book in the Earthsea series, darkness threatens to overtake Earthsea: the world and its wizards are losing their magic.

But Ged Sparrowhawk—Archmage, wizard, and dragonlord—is determined to discover the source of this devastating loss.

To restore magic, the two warriors must venture to the farthest reaches of their world—and even beyond the realm of death. Sparrowhawk says to Arren: "When I was young, I had to choose between the life of being and the life of doing. And I leapt at the latter like a trout to a fly. But each deed you do, each act, binds you to itself and to its consequences, and makes you act again and yet again.

Then very seldom do you come upon a space, a time like this, between act and act, when you may stop and simply be.

Or wonder who, after all, you are. Why does Arren find it so surprising? Who is the only creature capable of upsetting the great Balance and what is the cause? Why do you think Le Guin italicizes the sentence, "Infinite are the arguments of mages. What might she be trying to create or set up with this statement? When Arren asks if dragons do great evil, Sparrowhawk replies, "Who am I, to judge the acts of dragons?

They are wiser than men are. It is with them as with dreams, Arren. We men dream dreams, we work magic, we do good, we do evil. The dragons do not dream. They are dreams. They do not work magic: it is their substance, their being.

They do not do; they are". What do you think Sparrowhawk means when he says dragons are dreams? What is it that makes dragons wiser than men? How is this view of dragons different from how they are depicted in J. Tolkien's The Hobbit or other fantasy stories? What do Arren and Sparrowhawk find to be wrong with Hort Town? What do you think Sparrowhawk means when he says of Hare, "For all his craft in sorcery, he has never seen the way before him, seeing only himself"?

Why does Arren look upon Sparrowhawk "with love, but also with fear"? What is the great gift of childhood?

What had Arren hoped was the reason for Sparrowhawk choosing him for the voyage? What do you think Le Guin means when she writes: "To be one's self is a rare thing and a great one"? How does the idea of being one's self play out in the rest of the novel?

Who is Cob and why does he refuse Ged's offer to give him death? What is revealed in The Deed of Ged? Book 4: Tehanu About the Book Years before, Tenar and Ged had escaped together from the sinister Tombs of Atuan—she, an isolated young priestess, and he, a powerful wizard. Now she is a farmer's widow, having chosen for herself the simple pleasures of an ordinary life.

And he is a broken old man, mourning the powers lost to him not by choice. A lifetime ago, they helped each other at a time of darkness and danger. Now they must join forces again, to help another—the physically and emotionally scarred child whose own destiny remains to be revealed. What has become of Tenar since leaving the Tombs of Atuan?

Le Guin writes in her foreword, explore or extend the world established by her first four Earthsea novels. Yet each tale stands on its own. Taking place shortly after the last Earthsea novel, it also provides a bridge—a dragon bridge—to the next Earthsea novel, The Other Wind. The author concludes this collection with an essay about Earthsea's history, people, languages, literature, and magic, and provides two new maps of Earthsea.

The story is set about three centuries before the time of Ged. How is this story important to understanding the history and mythology of Earthsea?

He dreams of the land of death, of his wife who died young and longs to return to him so much that she kissed him across the low stone wall that separates our world from the Dry Land—where the grass is withered, the stars never move, and lovers pass without knowing each other.

The dead are pulling Alder to them at night. Through him they may free themselves and invade Earthsea. Alder seeks advice from Ged, once Archmage. Ged tells him to go to Tenar, Tehanu, and the young king at Havnor. They are joined by amber-eyed Irian, a fierce dragon able to assume the shape of a woman. The threat can be confronted only in the Immanent Grove on Roke, the holiest place in the world, and there the king, hero, sage, wizard, and dragon make a last stand.

Ursula K. In response Arha curses her in the name of the Nameless Ones. After her anger has cooled Arha realises that Kossil will now be determined to kill her, and that no-one can stop her.

She heads underground to the labyrinth to think, and is horrified to find Kossil uncovering the fake grave, and desecrating the tombs by using a light.

She heads for the treasury where Ged is kept prisoner, and in her desperation, confesses everything to him. In the meantime while prisoner there Ged has discovered what he came to find - the other half of Erreth-Akbe's ring. He begs Arha to abandon her role as priestess and escape with him from the tombs. Arha is eventually won over by Ged's kindness. She realizes that the Nameless Ones demand her service, but give nothing and create nothing in return.

Ged must expend his strength continually on hiding himself from the Nameless Ones, as they would kill him if they detected his presence. Realising that she has no future in the tombs Arha renounces her role as priestess and reverts to calling herself by her original name Tenar.

She helps Ged escape from the Tombs with the other half of the ring, as he frees her from the priesthood. The Tombs fall in upon themselves as Tenar and Ged escape.Master and use copy.
