Johannes Linnankoski *

a.k.a. Johannes Vihtori Peltonen

Author Code: NJLK

Born: Oct. 18, 1869 - Askola, Finland

Died: Aug. 10, 1913 - Helsinki, Finland

Educated at the Jyvaskyla Teacher's Training College, Linnankoski left after conflicts with his teachers. Writing was an early interest and his first work was published when he was 18. He worked at a variety of jobs in construction and logging and also worked as a journalist for the Keski-Suomi newspaper for a few months. In 1891, he moved to Porvoo and took a job with the Werner Soderstrom publishing house. He spent two years in the military before becoming editor of the Uusimaa newspaper. He married in 1899 and resigned his post in order to concentrate on writing. Over the next few years, he worked as a translator and produced some non-fiction works. In 1903, he published his first play, Ikuinen Taistelu, which appeared under his newly adopted pseudonym. The play was a great success and was awarded the Finnish Literature Association Award. In 1905, Linnankoski published his first novel, The Song of the Blood-Red Flower, an instant success, both at home and abroad. It has since been translated into 19 languages and remains his greatest work. In 1909, the family returned to Askola. In 1913, he published his last work, Sirpaleita, a collection of short stories. Suffering from ill health for a number of years, Linnankoski died in Helsinki at the age of 44. His other works include Kirst (1907), Pakolaiset (1908), Jeftan Tytar (1911) and Simson ja Delila (1911).
