Viktoria Kabadelova is an excellent representative of the generation of Eastern European poets who have adopted haiku as a chief means of expression. The Universe in Me (Avangard Print, 2006) ranges widely in terms of geography, cosmology, history, politics, and not least, the emotions. That it is offered in English as well as Bulgarian speaks also to her times in the poetic sphere.
You can read the entire book in the THF Digital Library.
