The Lathe of Heaven

Ursula K. Le Guin

$17.00 $15.64

In vivid dreamline prose from the opening sentence of this to its final words, Le Guin illustrates some elusive truths about the effortless wisdom of those who live humbly, yielding and allowing the perplexing incomprehensible structure of all things to play out, while warning about the self-annihilating consequences of hubris and attempting to impose one’s will upon the world. The title of unforgettable short novel comes from a serendipitous mistranslation of the ancient Taoist text the Chuang Tse: “To let understanding stop and what cannot be understood is a high attainment. Those who cannot do it will be destroyed on the Lathe of Heaven.”
