Tallinn. The spring issue of the Estonian Literary Magazine.

30.11.2007

The 26th issue of the Estonian Institute’s English-language magazine Estonian Literary Magazine (ELM) came out in time for the London Book Fair.

Lauri Sommer introduces Jaan Kaplinski as a prose-writer; the Canadian-Estonian Harry Mürk tells about his fascination with the ancient Estonian folk songs or regi songs and their translation into English; Tiina Kirss reviews the work of three women authors; Krista Ojasaar gives an overview of the one hundred years old Estonian Literary Society. In the section of translators of Estonian literature into foreign languages, Enel Melberg tells about her work; Christian Braw remembers Jaan Kross. As always, Rutt Hinrikus and Janika Kronberg introduce new prose and poetry books published in Estonia during the previous year.

The Estonian Institute has been publishing ELM since 1995, every spring and autumn, supported by the Cultural Endowment and the Ministry of Culture. As the only English-language magazine promoting Estonian literature, ELM is distributed via various cultural networks and institutions all over the world. In Estonia the magazine is available in bigger libraries, at the Estonian Institute office at Suur-Karja 14, Tallinn. The web version can be found at http://elm.einst.ee.
