Reader's Diary #1962- Aleksis Kivi: Seven Brothers in the Sauna

Aleksis Kivi's "Seven Brothers in the Sauna" was originally written in Finnish and is mostly made up of a conversation.

It's also strange. I'm going to assume that some of the story would require more than a passing familiarity with Finland and her customs (all I know is that they rake their forests) and also that there's likely a lot lost in a rather awkward translation.
