Helsinkiin by Juhani Aho
The miniature novel Helsinkiin by Juhani Aho was published in 1889. A psychological novel about a young man’s stepping into adult life, it also touches the then heated language politics as Finnish was emerging as a language of academia in the bilingual country. Aho (1861 – 1921) was among the first professional writers in Finland. This reading is in Finnish.
