Ecuadorian Literature

Ecuadorian literature is an entity rich in expression, language and story-telling. It is a literature influenced by the many cultures that comprise Ecuador – those of Spanish descent; the Quechua-speaking indigenous; and the Afro-Ecuadorians. It is a literature deeply rooted in the history and experience of Latin America.

It is this website’s ambition to attempt to collect and showcase information regarding the literature of Ecuador and anything and everything related to it. From biography of writers, to English translations (usually excerpts of hitherto untranslated works), to films made of Ecuadorian books, we hope you find this website interesting.

Our goal is to provide information about past Ecuadorian writers and to introduce new ones too, many of whom are well-regarded within Ecuador but may not have had the pleasure of an international audience yet.
