A Hundred Bricks Down- A poetry Anthology
A really successful poetry anthology needs two essential ingredients: pace and rhythm. The editor has to think hard about which poems are put together and how they relate to each other. Much of the challenge is working on the order and identifying certain poems that act as breathers to achieve the right tempo.
And then there’s the central thrust around which a selection of poems can be made. The idea of a poem’s therapeutic power is at the heart of an anthology.
With this anthology a new publication has outdone itself ,it has poems from some ten budding poets,from different walks of lives,so you get the blend of different stories.
They have soulfully painted their emotions about love,life,heartbreaks and hopes.
The poems by these new poets demands your attention,the best part about anthologies which includes this book is that everyone finds something or the other they relate to,You may relate or like one poet more than other but that’s part of it.
The one thing I feel can make this or any anthology more appealing is as I said earlier is the arrangement of poems,how are they put together and how they relate to each other.
