This article includes the speech read at the "1st International Symposium on Basque Cultural Studies" held in London in July 2000. In this paper, I endeavoured to describe the current Basque literary system, that is, to describe the structure embracing the production, mediation and reception of Basque literary texts. Having analysed the qualitative and quantitative growth experienced by Basque literature during this century, I ventured to present the likely challenges of the future. This was in fact a manner of vindicating the translation of texts written in Basque, stronger criticism and an increase in the pleasure of reading.
