Berlin Anthology

Texts and poems from all over the world, chosen by guests of the international literature festival berlin, are contained within this anthology. It is an extraordinary and personal collection of texts, many of which have been translated for the first time into German.

The international literature festival berlin offers visitors readings, discussions and encounters with authors of world-literature. It has established itself world-wide as one of the most important meeting points between famous writers and new, as yet undiscovered authors. The Berlin Anthology, which has accompanied the festival since 2001, reflects its diverse character and is the lasting essence which lives on following the 12 days of festivities and the authors’ return to their homelands.

The International Literature Festival Berlin, together with the Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung, has called on authors to contemplate the fates of refugees and asylum-seekers in literary form. Twenty-two authors from fifteen different countries answered this call in poems, short prose and essays. The perspectives and insights are just as different as individual motives, destinies, and experiences.
