Deep dive into poetry: Harry Salmenniemi

Deep dive into poetry is about focusing on the poetry collection Kuume (2022, Siltala) by Harry Salmenniemi. The collection is Salmenniemi’s seventh poetry collection, by which he returns to poetry having published mainly short story collections in recent years. The airy and sketchy poems of Kuume (fever) take turns with impressive prose poems. The five extensive parts of the collection show how strangely and interestingly the world can be seen and depicted. Salmenniemi is interviewed by critic Vesa Rantama.

Free entry. The discussion is held in Finnish.
