Introduction
This paper is a study in Anarchy thought reflected in one of the most renowned books of Ursula Le Guin's science fiction novel, The Dispossessed.
The book describes two separated worlds, Urras and its impoverished anarchistmoon Anarres, a planet that resembles our own and an alternative utopia to achieve by providing new directions in which society might grow to create a model based on philosophical principles, as freedom, solidarity, humanity, and equality.
The Dispossessed is a prime example of this, exploring as it does the ideological conflict between two opposing cultural and political hegemonies.
Theaim of this paper is not conclude definitely what Anarchism is, but what it does, how it works within the characters’ response to the demands of their environment.
In order to achieve the previous goal, I organized the present monograph in three analytic steps, first I will refer to the literary elements the book provides, second I will focus the attention on Anarchy subject matter, and third Iwill look for the possible anarchists allusions would be founded in the book.

Biography of Ursula K. Le Guin [1]
Ursula K. Le Guin, one of Oregon’s preeminent writers, was born Ursula Kroeber in 1929 in Berkeley, California, the youngest and only girl in a family of four children. Her parents were Alfred Kroeber, a prominent andinfluential American anthropologist, and the writer Theodora Kroeber, widely known for her accounts of Ishi, the last member of the Yahi tribe in California.  
The Kroebers’ redwood home in Berkeley was a place of books, music, storytelling, and discussion. Their summer retreat, an old ranch named "Kishamish" in the hills of Napa Valley, was a gathering place for scientists, writers, students, andCalifornia Indians. Mythology and legend were an integral part of the Kroebers’ family life, and Le Guin remembers that she "was brought up to think and to question and to enjoy." 
Le Guin attended public schools in Berkeley, graduated from Radcliffe College, earned a master’s degree at Columbia, and began pursuing a doctorate in French and Italian Renaissance literature. In 1953, as aFulbright Fellow steaming toward France on the Queen Mary, she met historian Charles Le Guin, also a Fulbright Fellow. They were married a few months later in Paris. 
By 1958, the Le Guins had settled in Portland, where Charles took a teaching position at Portland State College (now Portland State University) and Ursula began her career as a writer. They raised three children. Ursula Le Guin oncefamously said: "One person cannot do two fulltime jobs, but two persons can do three fulltime jobs, if the work is honestly shared."
Early attempts to publish her fiction met with little success, and Le Guin's first published writings were poems. She describes her early fiction as "just a little off." The term "magic realism" had not yet found currency, and her stories were perhapsuncategorizable. When she veered explicitly into the critically unrespected genres of science fiction and fantasy, she found willing publishers. A time-travel short story, "April in Paris," appeared in 1962 in Fantastic Stories, and in 1966 the novel Rocannon’s World was published as half of an Ace Double paperback.
As of 2009, Le Guin has published seven books of poetry, four collections of essays...
