|Title:||URSULA K. LE GUIN’S FANTASY WORLD IN THE FIRST EARTHSEA TRILOGY EMBEDDED IN KABBALAH|
|Publisher:||ISTANBUL AYDIN UNIVERSITY INSTITUTE OF SOCIAL SCIENCES|
|Abstract:||From primitive times to modern times, human minds have always wondered mysterious and paranormal entities, and they have questioned the power behind all of these mysterious things. In time, having knowledge of cabbalistic entities including the specific language have related with witches. So, this thesis proposes to illustrate the first three Earthsea novels (a Wizard of Earthsea, the Tombs of Atuan, and the Farthest Shore), which are enriched by fantastic, rich details of occultist customs and kabbalist features, and were inspired by many myths, and histories from the East and West about magic and witchcraft. Furthermore, this report aims to show the connections among symbols, specific names called” true names”, the power of language, an equilibrium between nature and magic, a reflection of witches being good or bad under the power of alchemy, reincarnation, astrology and telepathy in the first three Earthsea books, and how Guin harmoniously demonstrated occultist features and fantastic literary elements in the Earthsea series. This thesis purports to utilize an analysis of occultism through the ways that Le Guin constructed the selected novels involving occult tradition. Le Guin demarcated her fantastic novels in such a way that their storylines were intertwined within the fantasy elements that are filtered through the occult notion(s). Therefore, while assessing a meticulous analysis on Le Guin’s first three Earthsea books (The Wizard of Earthsea, The Tombs of Atuan, and The Farthest Shore), a reader can come across the stems of alchemy, and through one of the novels, might disembark at a part which is filled with occult elements rather than mere sorcery and magic.|
