Of Snow, of Soul offers a substantial selection from each of Jüri Talvet?s three most recent poetry books, Kas sul viinamarju ka on? (Do You Also Have Grapes?, 2001), Unest, lumest (Of Dreams, of Snow, 2005) and Silmad peksavad une seinu (Eyes Beat the Walls of Sleep, 2008). It thus complements the two previous volumes of his work that have been published in English by Guernica Editions: a booklength essay, A Call for Cultural Symbiosis, and a selection from his first four poetry collections, Estonian Elegy: Selected Poems.

About the Author:

Born in 1945 in Pärnu, Estonia, Jüri Talvet exemplifies the international public intellectual. He holds degrees in English Philology and Hispanic Literature, and since 1974 has taught comparative literature at Tartu University, chairing the University?s Department of Comparative Literature since 1992 and the Estonian Association of Comparative Literature since 1994. His poetry and essays have been translated into numerous languages. In 1997 he was awarded Estonia?s highest poetry honor, the Juhan Liiv Prize, and in 2009 he was invited to be one of the 54 poets to compose "The European Constitution in Verse."

Review:

"Talvet seems to seek a balance between ?the palm of the hand and immensity.? In a rapid rhythm, the intimate and the intellectual, literary erudition and fragile visual fragments alternate. In Talvet's poetry, the world wanderings of an erudite, a philosopher, and a cosmopolite become closely intertwined with the warmly intimate and humane: the little hand of his daughter, the echo of the voices of his father and his mother, his native home or a tree branch from his childhood. Such a clash and, at the same time, a harmony of contrasting dimensions create Talvet?s impressively personal poetic style." -- Marin Laak, World Literature Today
