Marking the Dispossessed compiles hundreds of isolated reader’s marks found in a collection of used copies of Ursula K. Le Guin’s 1974 anarchist science fiction novel, The Dispossessed. Sometimes subtitled “An Ambiguous Utopia,” The Dispossessed is the story of a physicist, Shevek, who travels from his planet of anarchists, Anarres, to a sister planet, Urras. Le Guin describes Shevek’s confrontation with things he hasn’t experienced before, like class difference, gender hierarchy, and personal property, as well as his perplexing encounters with everyday signs of excess, like the complicated layers of packaging around a box of chocolates. The book is organized with chapters that alternate between Shevek’s life on Anarres and Urras.
