A journalist, social critic, satirist, translator, and student of classical languages and literatures, Saarikoski combines classical idioms and everyday speech to achieve a highly individual poetic effect. Saarikoski has also played an important role in Finnish letters by translating many major world authors into Finnish. (Bowker Author Biography)
