Itsenäisyyspäivä! Today, 6 December, is the Finnish National Day that celebrates Finland’s independence from the Russian Empire. Instead of flying a flag (they will have hoisted many in Finland) we present a new Finnish poet on lyrikline.org.

The 6th door of our Advent Calendar reveals

Harry Salmenniemi

(with translations into English)

Born in Jyväskylä in 1983, Harry Salmenniemi is one of the leading young experimental poets in Finland. His biggest influences are language and flarf poetry and Oulipo, but he also enjoys writing traditional poetry and prose.
