Jarkko Tontti

The Missing Slate

”Like Jacasser, the central character in his second collection of poems, Jarkko Tontti is a Jack of many trades; unlike Jacasser, he is a master of most. A lawyer, poet, novelist, and essayist, he is also a former President of Finnish PEN and an executive board member of PEN International. His poem ‘Because everyone needs a roomy place’ (translated into English by Lola Rogers) was The Missing Slate’s first ever Finnish translation, and his conversation with the magazine’s Senior Poetry Editor Camille Ralphs—covering everything from the place of the ‘protean archetypal trickster’ in contemporary poetry to international copyright law in the post-Internet age—continues our Poet of the Month series.”
