Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review


The article discusses the early history of Finnish translations of
Russian literature in general and, in particular, a mysterious literary figure of the
St. Petersburg newspaper journalism, Mr. Grosswald, who was, according to the
newspapers’ small news (1875–1892), highly active in translating Russian literature
to Finnish. Apart from this, the mysterious man was claimed to participate in many
events, which were actual for the St. Petersburg Finnish life. The article illustrates the contexts of Mr. Grosswald’s “appearances” with the help of the real history of Russian literature in Finland. Mr. Grosswald is considered a mystification.
