The novel is a tale about the seven sons of a farmer who neglect their farm and come into conflict with the local village community and its leaders. The antisocial and melancholic overtones of the text are actually reinforced by Kivi’s lyrics, and especially by the poems he includes in the novel. In them, freedom and peace only exist apart from the world and the community, and happiness only beyond life, in death. #EUtah #byuinternational
