SUMMARY “This presentation attempts to give an overview of the history of Basque literature and make a diagnosis of our current literary scene. To that end, we have borrowed a few lines by the author Bernardo Atxaga in which he makes a comparison between our literature and a hedgehog that has been lethargic for too long, but has fortunately managed to wake up in the twentieth century. The second talk is a reading that is a journey through the best poetic voices in contemporary Basque literature”

LABURPENA “Aurkezpenak euskal literaturaren historiaren ikuspegi orokor bat ematea du helburu, baita egungo egoera literarioaren diagnostikoa egitea ere. Horretarako, Bernardo Atxaga idazlearen hitzez baliatu gara, hark gure literatura lozorroan luzaroegi egon den triku batekin konparatzen baitu: zorionez, animaliak esnatzea lortu du XX. mendean. Bigarren hitzaldia euskal literaturaren ahots poetiko garaikide onenen bitartez egindako bidaiaren irakurketan datza.”

RESUMEN “Esta presentación pretende dar una visión general de la historia de la literatura vasca y hacer un diagnóstico del panorama literario actual Para ello, hemos tomado prestadas unas palabras del escritor Bernardo Atxaga, en las que compara nuestra literatura con un erizo que ha permanecido aletargado durante demasiado tiempo, pero que afortunadamente ha logrado despertar en el siglo XX. La segunda charla es una lectura basada en un viaje a través de las mejores voces poéticas contemporáneas de la literatura vasca. ” PROF.
