abstract

This article reviews the work of Leire Bilbao, a writer belonging to a new generation of Basque authors who has managed to cross the borders of the Basque language. Since she published her first book in 2006, she has combined her poetry books for adults with children’s literature. Throughout this period, she has also made a more than interesting foray into picturebooks in collaboration with the illustrator Maite Mutuberria. Her children’s books, which range from critical realism to magical realism, are apparently simple narratives that can be read on several levels and that have a great poetic charge. Nevertheless, her two poetry books for children are, without any doubt, the most remarkable interaction between the author’s poetics and her production for children.
