Late in the Day, Ursula K. Le Guin’s new collection of poems, seeks meaning in an ever-connected world. In part evocative of Neruda’s Odes to Common Things and Mary Oliver’s poetic guides to the natural world, Le Guin gives voice to objects that may not speak a human language but communicate with us nevertheless through and about the seasonal rhythms of the earth, the minute and the vast, the ordinary and the mythological.

As Le Guin herself states, “science explicates, poetry implicates.” Accordingly, this immersive, tender collection implicates us (in the best sense) in a subjectivity of everyday objects and occurrences. Deceptively simple in form, the poems stand as an invitation both to dive deep and to step outside of ourselves and our common narratives. As readers, we emerge refreshed, having peered underneath cultural constructs toward the necessarily mystical and elemental, no matter how late in the day.

These poems of the last five years are bookended with two short essays, “Deep in Admiration” and “Form, Free Verse, Free Form: Some Thoughts.”

Praise:

“ ...a life-long observer of humanity and nature, who has borne critical witness to over eighty years of the modern age.” 
—Jillian Saucier, Rattle

“She never loses touch with her reverence for the immense what is.”
—Margaret Atwood

“There is no writer with an imagination as forceful and delicate as Ursula K. Le Guin’s.” 
—Grace Paley

“Le Guin’s down-to-earth, intensely personal voice is unmistakable.”
Los Angeles Times
