The European Literature Network (ELN) was founded by Rosie Goldsmith, formerly of the BBC show "Europhile." While working on this show, Goldsmith interviewed a number of writers across continental Europe and "quickly realized how hard it was for even the best writers to become known in the UK, in a country which reads so little in translation." This experience inspired her to launch the European Literature Network. The ELN website offers reviews of books authored across Europe that have been translated into English, offering a wonderful way for book lovers to discover new titles. Under the reviews tab, visitors can browse dozens of reviews by month and download free copies of The Riveter: a compilation of reviews of works that originate from a single nation or place. As of this write-up, readers can check out editions of The Riveter dedicated to literature and nonfiction works from Russia, Poland, and Nordic countries. In addition, visitors will find some short pieces of translated literature and poetry in the extracts section, under the translation tab.
