The headline portion of this story is that you can enjoy a previously unpublished Ursula K. Le Guin poem.
And if that’s all you want, then feel free to scroll past the setup and go straight to “The Wooden Woman” in the essay in which it appears.
But that piece — “Selidor: Ursula Le Guin and the Wooden Woman,” by Jacqueline Dougan Jackson — is bursting with lovely anecdotes about Le Guin’s visit to Beloit University (then Beloit College).
Jackson, herself a writer, is a lifelong Le Guin fan with several ties to the town of Beloit and the school bearing its name, so the 1992 visit was beyond exciting for her, as becomes clear in her essay for TriQuarterly.
