About the Book

Multiverse brings together four decades of work by the multi-lingual poet of whom Joseph Brodsky said “Listen carefully, she has something to say”. Sofronieva’s poetry covers a wide range from short lyrics to sequences of long poems adopting a playful and experimental language which explores science and other topics.

About the Book

Language is water that finds resistance across borders, her poetry flowing from her Balkan roots into her adopted German tongue.


Tzveta Sofronieva is the author of poems, stories, essays and lyric installations. She writes in German, Bulgarian and English. Her most recent books of poetry include Landscapes, Shore, Anthroposcene, Selected Affordable Studio Apartments, and her previous collection in English, A Hand Full of Water which was winner of the Cliff Becker Book Prize in Translation. Trained as a physicist and historian of science she brings these sensibilities and knowledge into her poetry.
She was born in 1963 in Sofia, Bulgaria, and lives today, after stays in many countries, in Berlin, Germany.

Chantel Wright is a professor of translation at the University of Warwick in England. She translates from German and Frenchman has received awards from the PEN American Center translation fund and her work has appeared in Words Without Borders and other literary periodicals.
