In Estonia, the last decade of the 20th Century saw the active involvement of intellectuals in politics. Indeed, during the “Singing Revolu- tion” they led the country towards the independence from the Soviet Union. Since 1992, under the new political circumstances, Estonian literati have initiated to revise the national literary canon, and they have envisioned a new place for Estonian literature within world literature. The aim of this essay is to delineate the change undergone by Estonian Literature over the last twenty years, and to discuss the ways in which it has opened up to broader, different horizons.
