Space Crone

£13.99

‘Space Crone’ brings together celebrated author Ursula K. Le Guin’s writings on feminism and gender. Witness to the twentieth century’s rebellions and upheavals, including women’s liberation, the civil rights movement and anti-war and environmental activism, Le Guin continued to fight for social and environmental justice throughout her life. Famous for her experiments in imagining society where gender is irrelevant in novels such as ‘The Left Hand of Darkness’, Le Guin’s feminism kept ahead of the times to reimagine gender in a non-essentialising way. ‘Space Crone’ shows the development of Le Guin’s expansive, multi-layered and deeply radical feminist consciousness from its roots in her ecological, anti-war and anti-nuclear activism, to her self-education about racism and her writing about ageing.
