Shevek is a brilliant physicist from the austerely isolationist and anarchic planet Anarres working on the Principle of Simultaneity which could revolutionize interstellar civilization by making instantaneous communication possible. But Shevek's life work is threatened by jealous colleagues and so, in the face of intense hostility, he makes the unprecedented journey to the rich mother planet, Urras, hoping to find more tolerance there.
But the aggressive capitalism of Urrassuits him no better than the anarchism of Anarres and Shevek soon finds himself a helpless political pawn. Winner of both the Nebula and Hugo Awards, The Dispossessed is a profound and compelling story of idealism and Realpolitik, and is the most important utopian vision in modern science fiction.

Biographie d'Ursula Le Guin

Ursula K. Le Guin was born in 1929 into an academic household- her father, A. L. Kroeber, was an eminent anthropologist, while her mother, Theodora Kroeber, was a writer. She herself obtained a Masters degree in Romance Literature following her undergraduate degree. Her first story was published in Fantastic magazine in 1962. Her first novel was Rocannon's World (1966), set in her Hainish universe.
Her fourth novel, The Left Hand of Darkness was critically acclaimed and won both the Nebula Award (in 1969) and the Hugo Award (1970). She repeated this feat with The Dispossessed (1974). Between these two books she wrote The Lathe of Heaven (1971), which was adapted for television in America, and the Earthsea Trilogy (A Wizard of Earthsea (1968), The Tombs of Atuan (1971) and The Farthest Shore (1972), a fantasy originally written for children.
In 1985 Le Guin published the ambitious Always Coming Home. She returned to the world of Earthsea with her novel Tehanu: The Last Book of Earthsea (1990). As well as writing SF, she has written SF criticism; she received the Pilgrim Award for her critical work in 1989. i
