The Dispossessed: Not simply an anarchist utopia/capitalist dystopia Originally posted at Fantasy Literature The Dispossessed is a perfectly achieved thought experiment, perhaps Ursula K. Le Guin’s greatest work, but there is little I can say that hasn’t been said more eloquently, forcefully, thoroughly, or knowledgeably by other reviewers.

It transcends the genre as a Novel of Ideas/5(K). ISBN: OCLC Number: Description: ix, pages ; 21 cm. Series Title: Literature series (Interactive Press) Other Titles. The Dispossessed is a utopian science fiction novel.

It is set in the Hainish Cycle universe. The story follows Shevek, a native of the moon, n: The novel transitions back and forth in alternating chapters between the “present”—Shevek’s journey to Urras—and the story of his past on Anarres.

As an infant, Shevek plays with other children in an Anarresti communal nursery, unable to grasp that nothing—no toys, no objects—belong to him. Everything on Anarres belongs to everyone. “History, pictures, stories, anything. Maybe they should be books for children.

The nine known worlds have joined in a sort of interstellar U.N.; the government of Urras has peacefully diverted its anarchists to a world of their own, Anarres, the moon; and now an Annaresti physicist named Shevek (cast in the mold of the ancient Terran Ainsetein) has formulated a theory that will.The Dispossessed (), a philosophical adventure story in which a physicist strives to complete a theory of simultaneity that will for the first time allow instantaneous communication between all the planets of humanity, is set against the backdrop of Le Guin’s richly textured vision of what an anarchist society might look like in practice.Few writers in any genre can claim to have had the range and influence of Ursula K.
