Maria Jotuni is appreciated as novelist and playwright and is one of the classic Finnish feminist writers. Her form was often short stories and dialogues in which she depicted the society, everyday life, love and tragedy from a woman's point of view. An apt description of people, intense dialogues without gestures together with pungent humour, characterize her works. First she intended to be a teacher and started to study art history at the university, but her writing took more and more of her time. She was married to a professor of literature.
