Ursula K. Le Guin is known for her prose; this show focuses on her work as a poet, which is what she is focusing on these days.  She's published seven collections so far - including, recently, Finding My Elegy and Late in the Day; another is in progress.  Her writing has received many honors and awards over the years; her acceptance speech for the National Book Foundation's Medal is on YouTube (yes, really) - you should listen.  If you've been thinking of her only in relation to prose fiction, you can enrich your knowledge with what you hear on this show, which includes a reading from the book she's working on right now.
