The Word for World is Forest- Ursula K. LeGuin

  • Sci-fi as exploratory space for ideas, similar to other books in the Hanish series such as The Unforgiven.
  • More allegorical than other books in the series, drawing direct parallels to the Vietnam war.
  • Contrasts colonial attitudes with indigenous people.
  • Not straightforward i.e. the people burn and kill without mercy. Learn violence from colonial oppressors, no going back.
