Ursula K. Le Guin is a prolific writer, and is most known for her SpeculativeFiction novels, although she has also written poetry, nonfiction, and young adult novels. Her works often explore cultural, sociological, ecological, or feminist themes; [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anarchism anarchism]] and [[{{UsefulNotes/Taoism}} Taoism]] also occasionally show up subtly (she is probably the best-known Western Taoist and has both written a commentary on and translated the ''Tao Te Ching'') or, in the case of ''The Dispossessed'', not so subtly (Anarres is an anarcho-communist society; this is a political book but not an {{anvilicious}} one: the subtitle is ''An '''''Ambiguous''''' Utopia'', and a central theme of the work is that Anarres has decayed in the years since its founding due in no small part to ideology and bureaucracy replacing revolutionary fervour). Her works have greatly influenced modern {{Fantasy}} and ScienceFiction authors, with systems, words, and ideas from her works showing up so often that some have become tropes in and of themselves. One of these was her coining of the word [[SubspaceAnsible ansible]], which has appeared in numerous scifi works since.

Her Earthsea novels have twice been adapted to visual medium. One is the oft-maligned [=SciFi=] channel miniseries and the other is the Creator/StudioGhibli film ''Anime/TalesFromEarthsea.'' Le Guin has made no secret of the fact that she is [[AdaptationDecay not particularly fond of either adaptation]] though she was rather more charitable towards Studio Ghibli. She was herself very keen on a planned adaptation of the first Earthsea book with director Creator/MichaelPowell (of ''The Red Shoes'' and ''Black Narcissus'' fame) a screenplay of which was previously published, and regretted that it never received funding
