Six Finnish Poets

arc_-_six_finnish_poetsFrom the Arc Publications New Voices of Europe series,  Six Finnish Poets features the poetry of six of Finland’s freshest voices – Vesa Haapala, Janne Nummela, Matilda Södergran, Henriikka Tavi, Juhana Vähänen and Katariina Vuorinen –  in an eclectic collection that combines intensely personal works with those that are cinematically objective, traditional lyric poems with whimsical search engine poetry, scientific explorations with science fiction.

Translated by Helen R. Boultrum, Emily Jeremiah, Fleur Jeremiah, and Lola Rogers and edited by Teemu Manninen, this anthology is a rewarding and unpredictable sampling of poetry as it is practiced in Finland today.
