Choices Quotes

How we cite our quotes:

Quote #10

Vetch asked no question about their course, knowing that Ged did not choose it but went as he must go. (10.3)

Once again, we have the issue of choice presented directly to us: Ged doesn't seem to choose, but does only what he has to do. It seems as if Le Guin wants us to reconsider the way that we think about choice – because sometimes Ged seems more heroic when he's not choosing, doesn't he?
