Juhan Liiv: Darkly, Gravely

14.99

translated by Laura Neill

Juhan Liiv’s reputation in Estonia is on par with that of Lorca in Spain and T.S. Eliot in America. Born on the shore of Lake Peipus in 1864 to a poor peasant family, the natural environment of his birthplace is soulfully and intimately conveyed through a unique lyrical style. Laura Neil has captured both the form and distinctive movement of Liiv’s verse in a way lacking in any previous translation of his work.
