"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 .
