Agri Ismail

The pioneers of global gentrification

Does anyone feel genuinely at home in the age of global gentrification? Probably not, writes Agri Ismail, certainly not if the experience of the Kurdish diaspora is anything to go by. But so long as a Swedish song plays in an Irish pub in a chain hotel in Kurdistan, a sense of security remains. [ more ]

Essays and articles

Carl Hendrik Fredriksson
Rahvusülese kirjanduskriitika taastamise poole
The re-transnationalization of literary criticism
Critical discussion of foreign literature serves as a source of information not only for readers but also for the "trade". When that discussion disappears or becomes one-sided, this has consequences for the literary institution as a whole.
Katharina Raabe
Kui udu hajus
As the fog lifted
Literature in eastern central Europe since 1989

In the twenty years since the fall of communism, literature has been lifting the fog that had settled over the expanses of eastern central Europe. A survey of the post-'89 wave of eastern European literature by Suhrkamp editor Katharina Raabe.
Ieva Kolmane
Kirjandus kriisiaja Lätis
Literature in Latvia during the crisis
A survey of the last decade in Latvian literature and the difficulties facing it because of the economic crisis, highlighting such authors as Inga Žolude, Inga Ābele, Jānis Einfelds, Jānis Lejiņš and Aivars Kļavis.
Almantas Samalavicius
Peaaegu normaalne
Literary perspectives: Lithuania
Almost normal

The literary field in Lithuania has established itself since independence, despite vastly smaller print runs. Today, a range of literary approaches can be made out, from the social criticism of the middle generation to the more private narratives of the post-Soviet writers.
Jonas Thente
Krimikirjanduse, käekottide ja firmaülikondade kõrval
Literary perspectives: Sweden
Beyond crime fiction, handbags and designer suits

Recent literary debates in Sweden have dwelled, among things, on authors' love lives and penchant for designer handbags. Yet there is more out there if one looks: Hans Koppel's satire of suburban manners, for example, or Magnus Hedlund's explorations of human perception.
Andreas Harbsmeier
Nüüdiskirjandus reservaadis
Literary perspectives: Denmark
The contemporary literary reservation

Committed, critical writing in Denmark is emerging from its sheltered existence in a literary reservation, in doing so collapsing the boundaries between the literary field and the broader public sphere, writes Andreas Harbsmeier.
Margot Dijkgraaf
Süva-Holland ja uued hollandlased
Literary perspectives: The Netherlands
"Profound Holland" and the new Dutch

While the work of novelists Jan Siebelink and Arnon Grunberg reflect the new need for security in the Netherlands, a parallel strand of contemporary Dutch literature sidesteps such concerns: writers with migrant backgrounds are introducing new styles into the Dutch literary repertoire.
Triinu Tamm
Prantsuse kirjanduse nullindad
The 00’s in French literature
Surveying French literature over the 1st decade of the 21st century, Triinu Tamm finds it still strong and vibrant, even though hard times have caused a certain decline in publishing.
Daniela Strigl
Kõike muud kui Saksa ussjätke
Literary perspectives: Austria
Anything but a "German appendix"

Austrian novelists are still referred to as Germans despite recent critical and commercial success. From the new narrative "miracle" to the darkly humorous "writer's novel", Daniela Strigl finds a contemporary Austrian scene at the top of its game.
Tymofiy Havryliv
Igatsus romaani järele
Literary perspectives: Ukraine
Longing for the novel

In Ukraine, the demand for engagement with the recent past has produced a series of novels that are better described as autobiographies. But, asks Timofiy Havryliv, is autobiography equal to the task?
Marek Tamm, Märt Väljataga
Rahvusülene kirjandus, kriitika ja raamatuturg
Transnational literature, criticism and book market.
On the basis of the reviews of national literatures, the essay attempts to point out certain broader trends in world literature, and discusses the problems connected with the translating and reception of fiction both in Estonia and elsewhere.
Reet Varblane
Pärast orgiat on võimatu võimalik, kui vaid on, kuhu toetuda
After the orgy, the impossible becomes possible, if only there would be a point of support.
A review of the late Estonian artist Kaljo Põllu’s memorial exhibition which also provided the illustrations of the issue.

Civil disobedience for an age of total surveillance
The case of Edward Snowden

http://www.eurozine.com/articles/2014-04-18-scheuerman-en.html
Earlier civil disobedients hinted at our increasingly global condition. Snowden takes it as a given. But, writes William E. Scheuerman, in lieu of an independent global legal system in which Snowden could defend his legal claims, the Obama administration should treat him with clemency. [more]

A finger pointing at the moon

http://www.eurozine.com/articles/2014-01-16-tokarczuk-en.html
Our language is our literary destiny, writes Olga Tokarczuk. And "minority" languages provide a special kind of sanctuary too, inaccessible to the rest of the world. But, there again, language is at its most powerful when it reaches beyond itself and starts to create an alternative world. [more]
