Liian Paha Sappi –by: Aaro Hellaakoski

The poem Liian Paha Sappi by Aaro Hellaakoski, which tells the tale of a child struggling to keep his temper:

A TEMPER TOO BAD

How it burns my sisu
when I have to be quiet
If my will would be fulfilled
the undertaker would get grain.

A little boy has gotten
a temper too bad
This sisu cannot be put out
by even the most snowy Lapland.

This project is unusual in that most of the readers are non-Finnish speakers, and learned the poem phonically.

Debout sur la parade, Chausserouge fit un signe et l'orchestre attaqua les premières mesures d'une marche.

Puis, tandis que pistons et trombones s'évertuaient, il jeta un coup d'oeil autour de lui.

A ses pieds, un cormoran déplumé faisait claquer son bec, tandis que, perché au sommet d'une échelle, un singe encha^iné promenait sur les rares passants un regard résigné.

Une peau de lion et une peau d'ours, se faisant face, tapissaient le...

Twelfth Night –by: William Shakespeare

Shakespeare's great festive comedy, probably written and first performed around 1601, follows the adventures of twins Viola and Sebastian, who are separated from each other by a shipwreck. Viola, believing her brother dead, disguises herself as a page in order to serve the lovesick Duke Orsino, who has been rejected by the Countess Olivia. The ensemble cast includes a roster of wonderfully comic characters: Olivia's drunken uncle Sir Toby Belch, his foolish friend Sir Andrew Aguecheek, the witty serving woman Maria, the social-climbing steward Malvolio, and the clever, riddling clown Feste.
