Henriikka Tavi was born in Vehkalahti, Finland, in 1978. Her first collection of poetry, Esim. Esa (2007) was awarded the Helsingin Sanomat Prize for the best literary debut of the year and was praised by the jury as “playful text-bashing”. For Toivo (Hope, 2011) she received the Kalevi Jäntti Prize and the Tanssiva Karhu Prize for Poetry. Tavi experiments on every level. In 2012 she tried to earn enough as a poet so as not to fall below the state’s official poverty line of € 1000 per month – which mean tht she had to publish twelve books of poetry in a year. Henriikka Tavi uses very different themes as starting points for her poetry. She writes poems that are inspired as much by chilfren’s nursery rhymes as by Finnish history, using repetition, playing with typography, using half-words and mastering fast rhythms in an enviable way.
