Juha Silvo

Juha Silvo is a former theologian, former radio journalist, editor, graphic designer, opera singer… For a long time he has thought of being also a former translator, whose specialities were translating classical vocal works into singable Finnish, and rhyming poetry. Silvo’s translations of the Collected Poems of T. S. Eliot had been worked through already in 2012, but stayed unpublished. Now WSOY has decided to come back to the original plan of publishing the whole of Eliot’s Collected Poems. Nowadays Silvo is mostly a gestalt therapist who after a long pause gets back into thinking something about T. S. Eliot.
