I read the first four of the Earthsea Cycle and then started 'The Other Wind' because I assumed that 'Tales From Earthsea' was separate from the narrative of the rest of the series set in the same world, but not with the same characters and sequence of events.
Adam Omidpanah You don't need to read Tales. The last short story in Tales introduces a character who plays a pivotal role in TOW, but TOW does an adequate job summarizing the events. I found Tales tremendously enjoyable, and an interesting choice as an interlude before continuing the narrative of Sparrowhawk. See 2 questions about Tales from Earthsea…. Lists with This Book.

Tales from Earthsea
Aug 25, Ivan rated it it was amazing Shelves: Ursula as wonderful as always. Jul 17, Lisa rated it it was amazing. I got this as a gift, from a friend who knew I'd read the Earthsea books the first four more than once.
These tales are based on the world of Earthsea, and the author reports that they are best read 'after' reading the first four novels of the Earthsea collection. I would concur, as it adds the necessary depth and context for entering the world of these tales. The first 'tale' in this book is called "The Finder" Stunning, to be moved so. It made me want to put the book down physically and stop thinking And to say a quiet Thank You to Ms. LeGuin for her incredible prose. If you enjoyed the Earthsea books, you will find this set of tales a great addition.
If you haven't read the Earthsea books, what are you waiting for? Do NOT be put off by the categorization of "Genre: Le Guin is and always has been a woman who can challenge our hidden assumptions about life, culture, and the meaning of living as a human being in chaotic world situations.
She's just clothed her wonderful explorations in a different milieu than contemporary times. View all 3 comments. May 04, Nikki rated it really liked it Shelves: It introduces a character who becomes important, and events which are referred to throughout the novel. As for the writing of the stories themselves, well: The glimpses of history and other places which we get in these stories is worth the price of entry, too. Originally posted here. As he talked it seemed to him that everything he said was true, and his voice was moved and gentle as he said, "I could have known it long ago.
But I chose not to use those arts.
I wanted you to trust me enough to tell me your name yourself. In the faint reddish glow of the cabin lantern her lashes cast very delicate, long shadows on her cheeks. She looked up, straight at him. He smiled.
She did not smile He said nothing. In fact he was at a loss. If he had known it would be this easy, he could have had her name and with it the power to make her do whatever he wanted, days ago, weeks ago, with a mere pretense at this crazy scheme-without giving up his salary and his precarious respectability, without this sea voyage, without having to go all the way to Roke for it!
For he saw the whole plan now was folly. There was no way he could disguise her that would fool the Doorkeeper for a moment. All his notions of humiliating the Masters as they had humiliated him were moonshine. Obsessed with tricking the girl, he had fallen into the trap he laid for her.
When will my book be dispatched from your warehouse?
Bitterly he recognised that he was always believing his own lies, caught in nets he had elaborately woven. Having once made a fool of himself on Roke, he had come back to do it all over again. A great, desolate anger swelled up in him. There was no good, no good in anything. The gentleness of her deep, husky voice unmanned him, and he hid his face in his hands, fighting against the shame of tears.
She put her hand on his knee. It was the first time she had ever touched him. He endured it, the warmth and weight of her touch that he wasted so much time wanting.
He wanted to hurt her, to shock her out of her terrible, ignorant kindness, but what he said when he finally spoke was, "I only wanted to make love to you. That I'd castrate myself with spells so I could be holy? Why do you think I don't have a staff? Why do you think I'm not at the school? Did you believe everything I said?
She said, "We can make love if you want. It's why I wanted to come to Roke. To find out. Clenching and unclenching his hands, he stood as far from her as he could, his back to her. It's all lies, shams.
Old men playing games with words. I wouldn't play their games, so I left. Do you know what I did?
My cell. My little stone celibate cell. It had a window looking out on a back street. No spells-you can't make spells with all their magic going on. But she wanted to come, and came, and I let a rope ladder out the window, and she climbed it. And we were at it when the old men came in! I showed 'em! And if I could have got you in, I'd have showed 'em again, I'd have taught them their lesson!
He stared. And we came all this way.
And you know my name. He knew her name: When reading it, I had a lot of expectations and this was one of my favorite books when I was a kid. I guess, growing up, I just anticipated much more adventure from the book and everything looks fun when you are a kid. However, this isn't a bad book at all. It is a nice read and the 5th book does not continue the story from the previous stories but goes through the history of Earthsea and Roke island and the school for the mages.
I linked the audio to the site Book to read and listen both. This is a wonderful and inspiring book.

I first read it many years ago when it first came out, then I read it to my children multiple times over the years. It is my favorite. I linked it with the audio to read and listen. The narration of this book by Jenny Sterlin is a masterpiece. It is so alive; listening is like watching a play. I highly recommend getting both the site and the Audio.
If you download them together, you can link them right away and it is much less expensive than downloading the audiobook separately.
Tehanu is my favorite book in the two trilogies. So deep. And Tales of Earth Sea sustained that richness and depth, both in beautiful storytelling and in depth of character. Le Guin falters towards the end of this book. Situations and many characters are wrapped up too quickly.
She probably should have written a longer book. As one commentator mentioned, it felt more like a philosophical statement than a story by the end. I would have loved to have Tehanu developed more in this book. The book did start out great. With some more editorial guidance, something really great could have been achieved.
I'm a late-comer to the world of Earthsea.
I noticed many average reviews from fans of that series, so perhaps I am missing something really amazing and I do intend to read as much of Le Guin's work as I can! They are the kind of fantasy I would like to see more of - quietly epic where the setting doesn't drown out the characters and where even seemingly mundane decisions and situations can be turned into memorable fantasy tales.Witches of Lychford.
The Complete Trilogy. Dikkatimi cekenlerden bazilari sunlar: Aug 17, Tatiana rated it really liked it Shelves: Magic in Earthsea[ edit ] Magic is a central part of life in most of Earthsea, with the exception of the Kargish lands, where it is banned. Words Are My Matter: A strong theme of the stories is the connection between power and responsibility.
