Ursula K. Le Guin has written poetry and fiction all of her life. Her first publications were poems, and in the 1960’s she began to publish short stories and novels. She writes both poetry and prose, and in various modes including: realistic fiction, science fiction, fantasy, young children’s books, books for young adults, screenplays, essays, verbal texts for musicians, and voicetexts for performance or recording. As of 2000 she has published over a hundred short stories (collected in eight volumes), two collections of essays, thirteen books for children, five volumes of poetry, two of translation, and seventeen novels.
