Product description

Six Finnish Poets, the eleventh volume in this series, features six writers whose work is symbolic of the connection between the life of poetry in Finland and the life of the poets who write it. In Finland, poetry is a part of everyday life, a way of living, founded upon a do-it-yourself attitude that is independent of the approval of critics, publishers, or the popular masses. The poets selected here exhibit the vast range of Finnish poetry, from experimental prose to image-rich surrealism, and from sparse, stark minimalism to ironically melancholy pop-culture references.
