kuopio professional writer Minna Canth (1844-1897) was known as the firm of as social commentator, who defended the underprivileged.
After the Savo track was built in the late 1880s, Canth take builders, poor working conditions and miserable wages to make a point. He dealt with them in two key areas in his book, a short story in the Poor people (1886) and the theatre scandal of the cause, which plays a Hard-luck children (1888).
the Poor people -a short story in Holpaisen family is the father's meagre wage because of the begging. Untold plight exacerbated the death of a child, the mother's mental illness and ending up in the poorhouse.
Hard luck child to turn the picture railway stop on the ensuing rebellion. The work is based on the Savo track construction of large redundancies.
the play was presented in the Finnish theatre in Helsinki only once, because, inter alia, arson, theft and assault contained in the narrative was just too much that time viewers. Hard luck child in the pennittömät workers fighting for a better life on our side in a way that made those in power fear the social order on behalf of.
Minna Maijala written by a biography on the basis of canth's known to be working on the Savo line and also in connection with the play, whose main character, as the two öykkäröivää engineers.
The play's script, however, was lost.
Then the labour museum Werstas museum director Kalle Rock left the study free to university of Tampere, doctoral dissertation in Finnish iron road builders in 1857-1940.Canth appealed to the workmen on behalf of the
Savo railway line construction was started in Kuopio emergency aputöistä 1886. Wages were miserable, preparatory work was making less than a mark a day. Many require touch-ups or working conditions, and workers began to unionize.
Kalle kallio, the case was the first time that the workers ' conditions rose to widespread public debate. Also Minna Canth told in a letter to his friend Henry Hagmanille he helped the workmen typing.
– I Assumed for a long time, that he was referring to this literary works, especially to Poor people-a novel. Then realize that the newspapers widely published the petition of the workmen's behalf is not guaranteed to be anyone, a working man written by. It was far too literary, the highbrow and vigorous.
When the Rock said the petition canth's wrote it, he had to check anyway, understanding the writer's links to the track builders.
the Rock was assumed that Canth had followed the fight of the workers, mainly newspaper articles on the basis of, but the relationship between the theme turned out to be closer. Canth knew the work of the lead, and he had ties to the track building, but also because as a trader the workers ' purchasing power interest him.
I Realized then, that he was really actively helping the workers, and dealt with them numerous different ways.
in the End, the Rock realizes that he's in possession of the author of the missing thought in the play."anger hotel and Möyrenius fit canth's personal gallery"
the Rock was found Kokkola journal of Engineering konttoorissa -name, one-act freak show. At first he thought it to handle Oulu track construction works.
Anononyymin the author of the play was published in the journal in two parts in January 1887.
When canth's close connection to Savo the track structure of the thing to brighten, began to Engineer konttoorissa -play content and familiarity with the affected very canthmaisilta. One-act antics of the main characters, the engineers anger hotel and Möyrenius suitable Cliff view, well Minna canth's personal gallery.
– Was a great moment, when you combine text canth was. Engineer konttoorissa deal with exactly the same issues as the Hard luck kids, but the humor of means. Any truth commission is what the writer to strengthen is not, nor Minnalta itself can no longer ask. I dare to still claim that this is canth's lost play.
canth's authorship on behalf of talking Rock according to that, how the play deals with that period, admire in the profession.
the Engineers were drinking at krapulaisina office, treat their workmen rudely and caused bad construction errors. The story in the end, they are forced to hire honest savolainen guys to correct poor bridge of his walls.
– Engineers were worshiped, they were heroes who tamed a vast wilderness, chained rapids and planned railways. This play approach is very exceptional for its time in thinking.Photos of Kokkola in the Journal of the published play.Kalle kallio kokkola Magazine was canth's supporter
Before the Cliff dare to claim the play canth's wrote it, he had to clear Kokkola Magazine backgrounds. Why a small local paper published a polemical writer of an anonymous text?
I found Out, that this publication was written by the a lot of admired stuff, Minna Canth. It wasn't quite usual, for he was in his time a very contradictory character. Yes he had aatetovereita, but not terribly.
Canth had a strong relationship Kokkola, inter alia, Frans August canth's , her dead husband's brother, through. Frans August Canth was in Kokkola yläalkeisk school principal.
They don't have preserved such a correspondence, where, for example, talk about the play's publication. Therefore, it is certainly no one's figured it out to search for Kokkola Magazine.
the fact that the play was published anonymously, not Rock, no not strange.
– Canth published other texts anonymously or under a pseudonym, authorship of the attitude I had at that time very different than now. Part may be the cheque that was expected of him throughout the evening spectacle on the subject, but the engineer-the idea didn't carry as far.Minna Canth different life stages.Museum office photos collections / Yle UutisgrafiikkaCanth was far from tosikosta
Kalle Kallio believes that a play can offer new lunch box from the literature study which. The text shakes slightly serious countries the perception that Canth often served.
If you look at his letters and follow his life, so he was fun and mischievous character.
his Own dissertation to my point, it's kind of I don't care who the play is written. That's why I thought that I can make the announcement now. There is still Minna canth's birth, the 175th anniversary, so the timing seems appropriate.
– the Show has reportedly submitted only a helsinki-based abstinence association of the Star, which you'll probably find it in the newspaper. Would be funny if someone now to seize this again.
Kalle Kallio has returned to the director of the museum, but to start the first of may of the second study period. Research and the lost Canth-play you can read more about Cliff blog (you move to another service)Subscribe Yle newsletters!
