...and was too slow if even was going to teach him anything. Not only that but also the fact that he tried to recall a spirit which at the end caused the shadow to come. Only when the shadow came he started to learn to be patient and that’s how he managed to figure out the shadows name and that it’s a part of him whom seemed to be all his negative bad sides of ged himself.
In conclusion ged managed to learn from his mistakes and always think of the outcome and how it will affect him in the future and whether if it’s bad or not, ged finally came to the point of understanding that in order to accomplish something one must be patient and think wisely as magic its self isn’t a joke nor a game to be played. Now the main aim of Leguin through this novel was to show that winning or losing doesn’t matter what matters is what you learn not how fast but what you manage to learn.
