  The Farthest Shore - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Farthest Shore is the third of a series of books written by Ursula K. Le Guin and set in her fantasy archipelago of Earthsea.
Spoiler warning: In addition to plot and/or ending details about The Farthest Shore, such spoilers for A Wizard of Earthsea, The Tombs of Atuan, and Tehanu follow.
In 1990, seventeen years after the publication of The Farthest Shore, Le Guin opted for the second ending when she continued the story in Tehanu.

 The Farthest Shore The Earthsea Cycle   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
The Farthest Shore is the third book in the Earthsea series, and the concluding one for several decades.
Shores shares with both Wizard and Atuan a coming-of-age theme, in this case it is Arren, a young prince who has come to Roke to tell Ged and the Master Wizards that magic is bleeding away in his land only to learn that the same is true all over Earthsea.
Wizard may be the most "fun" book of the series, Atuan is certainly the slowest and most introspective (simple description, not criticism), but in many ways, The Farthest Shore is the strongest, a judgment I think holds true considering the books that come after as well as those that come before.

 The Farthest Shore (The Earthsea Cycle, Book 3): Current Amazon U.S.A. One-Edition Data
I'm not giving anything away by telling you that the farthest shore is physical - the western shore of the westernmost isle of Earthsea and metaphysical - death.
The Farthest Shore is filled with scenes of Ged teaching Arren of the philosophy of balance and the power that fear has over people which are themes as relevent to our world as they are to Earthsea.
The Farthest Shore is a story of a young prince name Arren who comes to Ged, the archmage at Roke to tell him of a magic drain in Earthsea.

However, a prophecy must be fulfilled first: "He shall inherit my throne who has crossed the dark land living and come to the far shores of the day." Ged insists on taking action before any more discussion takes place about kings and future.
The eternal cycle of life, death, the return of the body to the earth, and one's energy to the universe, is part of the natural world which maintains the equilibrium of our planet.
"The Farthest Shore" is not her most scintillating work, but it's still a pleasure to read.

From the moment Ged unleashes an undead spirit into the world to his fateful journey into the Dry Land, he is forced to truly understand the nature of evil and how it develops in men --- feeding on fear, pride, lust and greed.
In THE FARTHEST SHORE, Arren, a young prince of Enlad and the Enlades, approaches Ged, now the Archmage of Earthsea.
Arren's father is also a wizard and fears that some evil is at work in the West Reach: "Spells have no power and wizardry is forgotten there." Convinced that all of Earthsea is in danger, Ged leaves his post as Archmage and goes on a dangerous quest with Arren to the end of the world.

In The Farthest Shore we find Ged at the peak of his power; he is ArchMage of his world of Earthsea, keeper of the balance of the magical world.
Despite the erudite language of her science fiction contributions, left hand of darkness et al, it is Farthest shore in which she reaches the reader most personally, and most movingly.
She is known and remembered for her contributions to the literary discussion of gender, of political systems, and more, but here she shows what is best in herself…her gentle heart, and her vision of a world where all the power there is could not bring one breadth more humanity to its owner.

 puritybrown: Reviews of Tehanu and The Other Wind
Tehanu picks up, with some overlap, where The Farthest Shore left off, but where The Farthest Shore focused on Ged and Lebannen, Tehanu is almost all written from the point of view of Tenar, first seen in The Tombs of Atuan.
The Farthest Shore is about a use of magic that Should Not Be, namely the attempt to achieve immortality.
Tehanu is concerned with the difficulty of coming to terms with not having power -- in Tenar's case because she refused to learn magic as a young woman, in Ged's case because he used all his magic up in healing a breach in reality.

 The One Ring: The White Council :: View topic - Beautiful painting of the Farthest Shore
The painting is actually of Andúnië on the west shore of Númenor, but as far as I'm concerned it is so perfectly beautiful it might as well be the first shores of Valinor or Tol Eressëa.
Originally of the shores of Beleriand Ulmo uprooted it to bring the Elves over the sea when they were first summoned to Valinor after thier awakening.
It was then anchored in sight of the shores of the Blessed realm and removed with it when the world was changed and made round.

Arren did not know the Old Speech, the tongue of wizards and dragons, but he heard praise and rejoicing in the words, and there was a great striding rhythm in them like the rise and fall of tides or the balance of the day and night each succeeding each forever.
