lives in: Tallinn, Estonia

Eda Ahi (b. 1990) is an Estonian poet and translator. Her works are characterized by precise style, the use of rhyme, and effortless rhythm.

Born to a bilingual Russian-Estonian family in Tallinn, she is very fond of Russian literature, and signs of this affection flicker in her works. Still, she regards the classic Betti Alver – Estonia’s greatest virtuoso of literary form – as her most important influence.

After graduating from Tallinn University with a bachelor’s degree in Romance languages and culture, then from the University of Tartu with a master’s degree in EU-Russian studies, Ahi has worked as a diplomat in Ukraine and as a state official in Tallinn. She is a member of the Estonian Writers’ Union, and has also translated poetry and prose from Italian and poetry from Russian into Estonian.
