The 'Euskal Literatura' Series was created with the intention of publishing research works on Basque literature written in Euskera. It aims to publicise the bases of research in that field. It covers a broad perspective and contains works in different methodologies. Throughout its existence it has addressed various fields: the sociology of literature, the history of contemporary Basque literature, oral literature, and research by a certain author, as well as works on translation.
The research work on Basque literature finds a special home in the 'Euskal Literatura' Series. Various books from the series have been awarded the Euskadi Literary Award.
