Dancing at The Edge of The World

Dancing at the Edge of the World is a 1989 nonfiction collection by Ursula K. Le Guin.

The works are divided into two categories: talks and essays, and book and movie reviews. Within the categories, the works are organized chronologically, and are further marked by what Le Guin calls the Guide Ursuline -- a system of symbols denoting the main theme of the works. The four themes with which she categorizes the essays are feminism, social responsibility, literature and travel.
