Kortazar Uriarte, Jon
Editorial: Euskal Herriko Unibertsitatea
This book brings together experts in the field to address six dimensions of the Basque literary system from I975 to 2013: novel, poetry, short story, children’s and young adult literature, dramatic literature, and essay. This is an innovative work about a literary system: a structure of interacting components, from writers and the themes they explore to the edifice of publishing houses, journals, and magazines that publish, market and distribute them, the critics and university professors that review them, and the people who read them. These products may be novels, short stories, poetry, comic and picture books, theatrical productions or essays. The text also addresses key related issues essential to understanding the multifaceted Basque literary system.
