How to Address the Fog free pdf 'Finnish poetry is characterized by a powerful contact with nature. There is so much about Finland's long winters, snow and darkness in the established poetic canon that when I came to compile this anthology I had to make a thematic choice: not too many poems of that kind. But you will certainly notice, dear reader, the abundance and energy of the seasons, the animals, the forests and lakes in these poems...' from the Introduction, translated by David McDuff. Sumari's selection includes work by legendary Finnish modernists such as Paavo Haavikko (published by Carcanet) and Lassi Nummi- several prose poems, the prevalence of which in recent Finnish literature she discusses in her Introduction- and aphoristic poems. Twenty two of the poems included were written in Finnish, three in Finland-Swedish. Poets: Gosta Agren, Kari Aronpuro, Bo Carpelan, Tua Forsstrom, Paavo Haavikko, Anne Hanninen, Hannu Helin, Markku Into, Eeva Kilpi, Eila Kivikk'aho, Juhani Koskinen, Jarkko Laine, Rakel Liehu, Arto Melleri, Lassi Nummi, Lauri Otonkoski, Markku Paasonen, Mirkka Rekola, Pentti Saarikoski, Helena Sinervo, Eira Stenberg, Anni Sumari, Arja Tiainen, Sirkka Turkka. Translators: David McDuff, Donald Adamson and Robin Fulton. How to Address the Fog is part of a series of bilingual poetry anthologies featuring twenty-five poems, one for each year from 1978-2002, from a particular European country. Poems are presented both in the original language and in new translations specially commissioned from Scottish poets. The book includes biographical and bibliographical information on the poets and translators.
