Aleksis Kivi is Finland’s version of Dickens, Twain, or Goethe. This book is the first translation of Kivi’s two most popular plays, Heath Cobblers, a comedy, and Kullervo, a trajedy. Both won prizes in Finland during Kivi’s lifetime and have attracted attention ever since. After virtually single-handedly creating the Finnish literary language over a century ago, Kivi continues to inspire the best contemporary Finnish writing. .
