Is it possible today to talk about a world literature, almost 200 years after Goethe introduced the term? Should it be the role of literature to address the big, global problems of our time, or do authors write best about their immediate reality? Meet Burhan Sönmez, Adania Shibli, Veronique Tadjo and Hernan Diaz for a conversation about how they navigate in world literature and what influences their context as writers.
