the language of the night

“Those who refuse to listen to dragons will probably spend their lives acting out the nightmares of politicians. We like to think we live in daylight, but half the world is always dark; and fantasy, like poetry, speaks the language of the night” – Ursula K Le Guin

    To you and to Ursula Le Guin, I have found a book in the used by Ursula Le Guin, ,”Dancing on the Edge” Thoughts on Words, Women, Places, Paladin, Harper Collins, London, 1989, that I am thoroughly enjoying and as I have a copy of Lavinia I will read it again with more depth. SO…. I wondered what ‘the language of the night’, would say. I understand that poetry speaks the language of the night, love poetry, would gather more of hers and therefore will. I will order from Powell, or whatever way I can find it. In the meantime I will write soon to the P.O.Box given. Please thank Ursula le Guin for me, Sincerely, Katharine Scott Wheaton, age 82 as well.
