Rakel Liehu

Rakel Liehu was born in 1939 in Nivala, Finland, the daughter of a Lutheran minister. Helsinki, however, has been her actual and emotional home for most of her life. She studied Finnish language and history, subsequently lecturing in both fields. But writing has an unrivaled hold on her; aside from many collections of poetry, she has written two plays and been a newspaper columnist with a focus on cultural matters. She is also an accomplished translator of German and Swedish poetry.
