Estonia's Jaan Kaplinski is one of Europe's major poets, and one of his country's best-known writers and cultural figures. He was a member of the new post-Revolution Estonian parliament in 1992-95 and his essays on cultural transition and the challenges of globalisation are published across the Baltic region. This selection includes work previously unpublished in English as well as poems drawn from all four of his previous UK collections: 'The Same Sea in Us All', 'The Wandering Border', 'Through the Forest' and 'Evening Brings Everything Back'.
