The main objective of this paper consists of analyzing the various responses of Spanish writers about Equatorial Guinea. Since the early 20th century, Equatorial Guinea has been reflected in Spanish Literature in many ways. Some writers were only interested in the exotic landscapes or the peculiar customs of the indegenous people. Others paid special attention to the colonial system which had worked as the means of exploitation. Recently we can find a new trend in certain works which are heading for Cosmopolitanism beyond the traditional dicotomy of Colonialism and Postcolonialism. In order to carry out my objective, I chose La casa de la palabra of Jose? Antonio Lo?pez Hidalgo, published in 1995 as the main text. After introducing briefly the colonial history and the literary identity of this country, I focused on Carolina, protagonist of this novel. She was born in Equatorial Guinea and lived among the indigenous people. But the independence made her come back to Spain, her home country. Twenty years later, we can find her again as nurse, volunteer of the international cooperation. In this hot land, she meets her acquaintances like doctor Garci?a Sa?ez and Mama? Raquel, her old baby sitter to pursue the traces of her lost father, Carlos Araujo. In particular, the black old lady, Mama? Raquel, takes special care of Carolina, showing ilimited love for her and regarding her as the symbol of salvator and succesor of the Bubis. Through the analysis of this novel, I can get to the following conclusion. The writer intends to overcome the traditional dicotomy between Western modernity and African savage, colonialism and postcolonialism, domination and resistance, suggesting that the peculiar life of each indivisual is as valuable as the universal life. As Kwame Anthony Appiah suggests, every broken piece of mirror reflects a part of the truth and only one broken piece doesn`t exist in the world.
