Ilmar Laaban

Ilmar Laaban (1921, Tallinn, Estonia – 2000, Hagersten, Sweden) – poet, performer, translator. Studied Philology at Tartu University (Romance and Germanic department) and Musical Composition at Tallinn State Conservatory. When the pro-fascist regime got established in Estonia in 1943, Laaban, trying to avoid military service, moved to Sweden where he continued studying Philology and Philosophy at Stockholm University. His poetic views were shaped under the influence of the new French literature, in particular, dadaism and, to a greater extent, surrealism.
