Juhani Aho

Juhani Aho (September 11, 1861 - August 8, 1921) was the first professional Finnish writer and is regarded as a kind of national writer of Finland. Juhani Aho was known as Johannes Brofeldt before he changed his name in 1907.

He wrote several novels and an even greater number of short stories of distinct style, called "splinters" ("lastuja" in Finnish). Their topics could vary from political allegories to depictions of everyday life. The first and most famous of them is "When Father Brought Home the Lamp", depicting the effect of the innovation on people living on country.

Aho's literary output is wide-ranging since he pursued different styles as time passed. He started as a realist and his first novel Rautatie (Railroad), which is considered one of his main works, is from this perioid. Later he approached towards neoromanticism with his books Panu, Kevšt ja Takatalvi, and Juha, which is also one of great Finnish classics.
