No island constitutes Basque literature, and much less so the Literature of the Basque Country, since in Western Europe, of which the Basque Country is a part, there is no such thing as an isolated national literature. Although, over the last quarter of a century, literary production in Basque may have increased considerably, especially as far as narrative is concerned, the same process has not taken place reference to quality or to readers. There is a lack of critical spirit. In any case, the projects that we present here offers general perspectives with a multitude of suggestions. Professor Marijose Olaziregi -who advocates for feminist literature? provides us with an overview of Basque literature in the peninsular Basque Country; Txuma Lasagabaster ?a master of masters?, speaks of literature in Castilian Spanish that is written in the Basque Country; Jon Casenave and Lucien Etchezarreta ?spokes people from the continental Basque Country? inform us on the literature that is produced there both in Basque as well as in French; David Río reflects on the North American literature in English on characters of Basque origin, and Vahan Sarkisian, ?an ambassador from the east?, explains to us how Detxepare was translated into Armenian.
