'Man reading should be man intensely alive. The book should be a ball of light in one's hand.' - Ezra Pound
As I began reading this anthology of poetry and prose, these lines by Ezra Pound seemed to reverberate across the entire volume of writings. In a new phase of world that we are living in and trying to cope with, the book brings with it a glimmer of hope that one hopes to hold on to and live in.
