Canadian Friends of Finland and Runeberg Lodge 124 invite you to join the Runeberg Study Group in an informal English language, small group discussion about some of the poetry & other works of Johan Ludvig Runeberg, Finland’s National Poet.
The national poet of Finland wrote in Swedish and exercised a great influence on Swedish literature. Runeberg's poetry has been compared to that of the great European romantics, such as Hugo, Shelley, Keats, Lermontov and Petöfi. He was the first Finnish writer to achieve a broad national significance and a wide international fame. Read more here - http://www.kirjasto.sci.fi/runeberg.htm
