Columns The “impossible” hall of Alastalo turned into German – and Stefan Moster, who performed the miracle, is now nominated for the country’s best-known translator’s award

Volter Kilven’s classic from 1933 is a tough challenge for even a Finnish professional reader.

Must be at least four years after Stefan Moster (b. 1964) hit the street in Helsinki. He is the one that German publishers listen to when considering including Finnish works in their programming. And in addition to his own significant work as a writer, Moster has also translated them into his mother tongue: novels, poetry, plays.

I know him so much that I doubt he knows Finnish better than I do.

Still, the information on the street amazed me. Moster said he would turn around Volter Kilven a classy expression and a huge classic In the hall of the nave house (1933) in German.

That’s choking on that, inch.

I personally wore it Naked house one chapter pace my comrade Ilkka Malmbergin (1954–2016) from January to Midsummer in a reading circle published in the columns of the cultural editorial office in 2000. Ilkka was nicknamed “Ihantola” and I was “Kämärä”. The division of roles arose naturally, as one of us was able to get excited about extreme accomplishments.

But Annas be, Moster’s translation Im Saal von Alastalo was published last October by Mare Verlag.

Siltala Publishing House has published three novels by Stefan Moster in Finnish.

The reception has been good when it has been. In Germany, the same dilemma applies as in Finland: even large magazines may not find a qualified critic who agrees to a thousand-page contract with modest compensation.

So Moster especially praises the Neue Zürcher Zeitung’s assessment of “downright amazing”. You can read the criticism from here.

The best is however, the fact that the German edition was nominated for the Leipzig Book Fair in the series of translation books was the first Finnish work ever.

There are five candidates in total. The winner will be announced on March 17th.

The Frankfurt trade fair in October is the largest book market event in Europe. Leipzig, on the other hand, focuses on content. According to Moster, the recognition given there is practically the only translator’s award that receives public attention.

Before German From the nave has been obtained only Thomas Warburton Swedish I Salen på Alastalo (1997).

A shield novel the ninth chapter is already getting started – on page 358! – towards the issue, the construction of a parking vessel with the joint funds of the Gustav hosts.

The whole page is a single sentence. The Shield is a hobby after all.

But what does it mean, for example, “… the southern grove from the people of the free lungs of the sea and the honest wind to wipe from the platform the eastern aspirations of the east on their continents …”, so how do I say in Finnish?

Came for the award or not, Stefan Moster is the winner.

The mood in the hall was quite improved, albeit a little vigilant. As in the seas, when the blizzard swirls, when the beak of the mink is behind a gusty terrestrial wind, and strikes from the mainland its bags like sails, wipes the reindeer as a whole. a cow whispering and licking its muzzle in a summer garden, like at sea with water-like headwaters, but the signs of the sky in the direction of the clouds are reminiscent and bubbling with the sea floats in its foam chains the people and the honest wind sweep the eastern aspirations of the eastern plains as sparse on their continents, as in the whispers of the sea, when the hand is already reserving the rudder wood for the severe pressures of the play but the eye still keeps an eye on what the rooster boy brushed on the side next to him, so in the hall now: the idea of ​​tilting the rafters and wetting them from the plume, but the eyes were already a little in the shadows of each other’s eyebrows, alert to the other claims of heaven, and the fingers of the thought even with the sheep pastures of the cloud, and with the clean, which the color of the water hints at from its secret.
