Literature

The Estonian Institute in Hungary is dedicated to the promotion of Estonian literature from the classics to the latest contemporary texts. The Institute and publishing house Pluralica launch an anthology of contemporary Estonian short stories by a chosen writer every year, including some texts which have so far not been published in Hungarian and an interview with each author. The aim of the Breviarium project is to present Estonian authors to Hungarian audiences, both professionals and interested readers, at the same time prepare a platform for their translation. The booklets are colourful in appearance and the texts are accompanied by the original graphic work of Estonian artist and poet, Asko Künnap. Breviarium has so far successfully presented the work of Andrus Kivirähk, Mehis Heinsaar, Eeva Park, Jaan Undusk. The publishers plan to continue with the tradition in order to bring Estonian literature closer to the local readers.

 

Besides the Breviarium series the Estonian Institute in Hungary publishes Estonian short stories in Hungarian on special occasions like film festivals.
