I am considering this one a 3.5 star rating. I enjoyed Tehanu more so than The Farthest Shore, but not quite as much as A Wizard of Earthsea or The Tombs of Atuan.

Speaking of The Tombs of Atuan, I was very pleased to be reacquainted with Tenar, some 25 years after we left her in that book. I was pleased to see that she found a simple life on Gont, away from the terror and blind fanaticism that was her experience on Atuan. In this, Tehanu is a different story. It is slower paced than the books preceding it, but I found that it didn't suffer for this. Quite the opposite. Tenar (as well as Therru, Ogion, Ged, and a few other side characters on the island) is interesting to read about whether she is escaping pitch black labyrinthine depths, or whether she is planting peach trees and sewing a new red dress.

Now, that isn't to say that Tehanu is without conflict; on the contrary the plot is engaging and wrapped up nicely at the end, satisfyingly, and with room for more stories (I'm especially looking forward to the Other Wind). And in true Le Guin fashion she raises many worthwhile topics of conversation in these pages.; especially the focus on a woman's 'place' in Earthsea. Things are changing in the islands of Earthsea, and as far as I can see, for the better. Her prose is as efficient as ever, and every once in a while she hits you with one of those short little passages that is so intricately beautiful that you can't help but stop and read it again. There are a couple of those throughout.

The fourth volume in Ursula LeGuin's famous Earth Sea series, following the life and magical destiny of a dark and tormented character who comes into her own at the end. It deals with themes already presented in earlier volumes: cruelty, disability, vengeance, use and misuse of power, and the healing force of love. A profound return to the world she created with Wizard of Earth Sea, Tombs of Atuan, and the Farthest Shore. It also leaves open the world of Earth Sea for future exploration.

Probably 3.5 stars. I always appreciate LeGuin for her characters, plots, and insights into humanity. In this book, she explores the idea of what happens after you are no longer the center of attention. Is a person only what they accomplish? What about all of the common people? This book is a followup to the Farthest Shore, but it is slightly unclear how long afterwards. The center of the book is Tenar (from The Tombs of Atuan) and Ged from the earlier trilogy. Both are now older and in some ways worn out--especially Ged. I won't go into any spoilers, but it was a little slow for me. I enjoyed the conversations and the characters, especially Tenar and Therru--her adopted daughter. My complaint is that it has a nice slow pace, until 84% into the book it appears that the author decided to quickly wrap it up. Lots happens in the last few pages that aren't well explained nor do they seem consistent with the characters. For example (mild spoiler) up until this point Therru has not been able to speak much. All of a sudden she is a primary narrator. There are various prophecies and hints about things which don't get explained and they are left unresolved at the end. I felt that it should have been about twice as long or there should have been an immediate sequel. The "official" next book (Tales of Earthsea) does not resolve any of these either. In the end, I felt let down that there was so much more that could have been explored and explained.

"Tehanu" steps back from the series' focus on epic journeys and instead focuses on Tenar and her place in the world.

I like the exploration of identity and autonomy. Ged has lost his magic, so he has to shape a new identity for himself, and Tenar's life is changing. There is the idea of a person being shaped by the events around them and playing a role rather than being their own person. Tenar says, "I chose to mold myself like clay... I made myself a vessel. I know the shape. But not the clay. Life danced me. I know the dances. But I don't know who the dancer is." She is saying that even when she was given choices, she was only choosing a role for herself and that she didn't know who she was as a person.

I like that discussion because it eloquently lays out a question that many people have: who am I? Where does the individual begin and the social conditioning end? I disagree with the overall answer, though, because I don't think that there is a transcendent self separate from the person immanent in the world. As Chuck Palahniuk said, "Nothing of me is original. I am the combined effort of everyone I've ever known." In Tenar's analogy, the clay gains its meaning only as a vessel; the dancer is defined by the dances. The question shouldn't be trying to figure out who the dancer "really is" (as if there were some meaningful answer to that question) but rather to figure out the right dances to do. We shouldn't ponder on the nature of clay; we should make things with it.

The book has a focus on social structures. I remember reading some second-wave feminist writings by Catherine MacKinnon where she describes women as superior for reasons relating to their connection to the earth and bearing children and having periods and breastfeeding (if I recall correctly). Le Guin reflects, in her afterword, about a conversation. One character, Moss, says, "Who knows where a woman begins or ends?... I have roots... I go back into the dark!... Who'll ask the dark its name?" and the protagonist, Tenar, responds, "I will... I lived long enough in the dark." Moss' statement seems very much like MacKinnon's writing, and Tenar's response, very much in the theme of her explorations in the book, is an expression of dissatisfaction with the simple mysticism of second wave feminism. She feels as though other peoples' explorations of identity aren't helping her own search, and a reflection of the power structures and systemic injustices that she has experienced are more relevant to her than discussions of intrinsic identity.
