Jyrki Pellinen: Kuuskajaskari

Kuuskajaskari, from 1964, published here as a bilingual edition -– in Finnish and in an English translation by Leevi Lehto –- is a seminal work of the Second Generation Finnish Modernism, by the virtuoso poet Jyrki Pellinen -– a “description of life” that “is not tender”, an account of the “agony of coming into the world”, of a becoming-a-poet-as-a-thing in a process of endless dismemberment, struggling “among creatures of my own size, castle lords, furuncle-faces, robberly inclined, old women, and other such objects of nature”.

"Runsas ilmaisu haastoi modernismin tiukkaa perinnettä."

Touko Kauppinen, Helsingin Sanomat (2010)
