Electric Verses - online poetry from Finland

Electric Verses is an online selection of contemporary poets and poetry from Finland. It is quite ambitious with regard to translations, as even if an author only has one poem published on the website, it may appear translated into English, French, German, Spanish and Italian. (Plus Swedish and Finnish, depending on the mother-tongue of the author in question.) Not every poem appears in all these languages, but some do.

The majority of authors are Finnish-speaking (21) the rest (8) Finland-Swedes.
