Approaching Bo Carpelan’s Urwind (essay collection)

As those who have written on Carpelan know, there’s a dearth of critical material on his work, at least in English. This volume exists to help fill that gap, focusing particularly on his novel Urwind, which won the Finlandia Prize and is considered one of the principle texts of Finnish Modernism.

The book is under contract, to be published by the Research Unit for Contemporary Culture at the University of Jyvaskyla, Finland. The Research Unit’s publication series began in 1986 and is multi- and interdisciplinary, publishing studies on contemporary culture and cultural theory. Currently, there are more than sixty volumes in the series.
