theindrawnheartcoverI was hooked right from the first page of this travelogue when the author recounts an amusing anecdote about a receptionist and ‘chicken’ at the hostel in Tallinn where he is residing at the start of a two month  backpacking odyssey around Estonia searching for answers to the title of his book.

‘The indrawn heart’ is taken from an English version of a Juhan Liiv poem ‘Sa oled väikene, väike. (You are so little, little) – translation by E. Howard Harris (Estonian Poetry I 1950). Boyle seeks to discover during the course of his journey whether Estonians really do have ‘an indrawn heart’ but the outcome is inconclusive as so many of his interviewees have differing views about the poem and indeed the translation of this particular line of the poem.

Not just any old wooden chair, but a gingerbread replica of a famed late 19th century Lutheri tool or plywood (vineerist) chair made in Tallinn's A. M. Lutheri Mehaanilise Puidu/töötlemise Vabrik / Luther Woodworking Company.


From 1880 to 1940, the Luther factory was one of the world's leading plywood and furniture companies, contributing greatly to plywood production and furniture design.


The Lutheri kvartal (quarter) of preserved industrial buildings along Pärnu maantee in Tallinn now houses apartments and offices.


This gingerbread beauty is the work of Mall Kees and Malle Pärtel.





01 Ehin


John Taylor, the author of into the Heart of European Poetry (Translations) and translator of several French poets writes about Kristiina Ehin’s bilingual selection of verse, rendered from the Estonian by Ilmar Lehtpere as it appeared from the Bitter Oleander Press.


The “1001 Winters” translations from volumes entitled The Drums of Silence (2007), New Moon Morning (2007), Burning the Darkness (2009), Scent of Your Shadow (2010) and The Final Going of Snow (2011).


Taylor writes that so much work all at once shows the coherence and the dichotomous vision of the poet, born in 1977, who is attentive to “this (side) as to the “far side of seeing”.


Her symbolic lyricism is often based on Baudelairean correspondences. Nature is omnipresent.

Mark your calendars for January 24 - 31, 2015!  The first ever KLENK (Kesk-Lääne Eesti Noorte Koondis / Midwestern Estonian Youth Association) and IEP (Idaranniku Eesti Päevad / East Coast Estonian Days) joint event will take place aboard the beautiful Ruby Princess, setting sail from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, and bound for a seven-day Caribbean cruise.
