Donostia-San Sebastián. The Laida Research Group at the UPV/EHU directed by Jon Kortazar has just published a study about the works by five current Basque writers in the prestigious magazine Rassegna Iberistica at the Universidad Ca’Foscari in Venice. The work is entitled “Basque Writings by Women,” and describes the works of the following Basque writers: Katixa Agirre, Eider Rodriguez, Karmele Jaio, Leire Bilbao and Maixa Zugasti, according to sources at the UPV/EHU University of the Basque Country.

In Jon Kortazar’s opinion, Professor of Basque Literature at the College of Education in Bilbao, “Basque literature is at a time when female writers show different voices and are at the center of the literary system.  Once can speak of a new climate in current Basque literature.”

These four, Agirre, Rodríguez, Jaio and Bilbao, have also seen their novels and poems translated to Spanish in 2019 and 2020, with notable success on the part of both critics and readers, and various editions of some of their novels and poetry books. Summaries in English.
