Reviews & Comments

"[Le Guin's] sixth gathering of poems comprises compact and often songlike work, adroit in both Western (rhyming quatrains; couplets) and non-Western (meditation and praise song) modes."

Publishers Weekly

"Le Guin's poetic voice is clear and lyrical; her many fans will not be disappointed."

— Pat Monaghan, Booklist

Ursula Le Guin's dazzling gifts of seeing and saying shine full force in the amazing Incredible Good Fortune. I love Le Guin's mind, the vast generosity of her language and all it invokes. Here is a book to lift the spirits of all ages of readers — give it to your favorite teenager as well as your wisest elder. It is rich, resonant, and simply wonderful."

— Naomi Shihab Nye
