But the Second Greatest Work is about seven guys alone in the woods. What's not to like?
Seven Brothers (Seitsemän veljestä, 1870), by Aleksis Kivi, is about guys who are perfectly happy living alone on their farm near Toukola. They are rowdy, crude, and given to practical jokes. They like to hunt and fish and get drunk and hang around nude in the sauna. But then they discover that they must be civilized: they must learn to read, which will result in being confirmed into the Lutheran Church, which will result in wives!
Faced with a vision of their fun ending, definitively, at the wedding altar, they rebel. They light out for the territory and build themselves a house in the wilderness of Impivaara, where they can continue to be rowdy and crude and play practical jokes, and hang out nude in the sauna.
Actually, after ten years in the woods, they return to Toukala, join the church, and get married (except for Simeoni, who stays single). You can't hold out forever.
But no one remembers the civilizing. The images that stick with you are the seven guys in the woods, being crude and rowdy, needing no one else.
