By Luis Martin-Estudillo, Nicholas Spadaccini

This quantity, together with essays on Catalonia, the Basque nation, Galicia, and literature written via African immigrants, specializes in problems with "difference" which are on the heart of present debates in Spain and elsewhere--the emergence of minoritized literatures, multilingualism and identification, new relationships among tradition and associations, the negotiation of ancient thoughts, the connections among migrations and the redefinition of nationhood, and the impression of worldwide developments on neighborhood symbolic structures.

Thus, political life was foreign to the world of Basque, and literary life as described by Lasagabaster (“La Ilustración” 157) was almost non-existent in the Basque language in the eighteenth century. Furthermore, the authors and works that we now claim as part of our literary history did not belong to any system of Basque literature but to the system of the Church, with its pastoral approach and emphasis on the catechism. 1 This brief description of the beginnings of Basque literature reveals a literary scene in which a diglossic situation implies that our literary past suffers from, or meets, many of the characteristics that Antón Figueroa describes in his Diglosia e texto (Diglossia and Text): the inclusion of non-literary works in our historiography, and of works not originally written in Basque, and the preeminence of folkloric, mythic or ethnographic elements in its assessment.

Again, the restitution of the past has an ethical function in a text by Atxaga, who reminds us that history is a narrative discourse that offers a certain interpretation, one provided, of course, by the winners. In The Accordionist’s Son, Atxaga again speaks, as he does in Gizona bere 34 MARI JOSE OLAZIREGI bakardadean (The Lone Man) and Zeru horiek (The Lone Woman), of exile, of subjects who try to build their home away from home, but here, instead of heterotopic spaces (a hotel, a bus), utopias prevail, the possibility of beginning again.
