Crimson CropeBook - 2012
Crimson Crop is Peter Rose's fifth poetry collection and his first since 2005. This volume has at its core a series of elegies, several about his late father Bob Rose (a respected Australian Rules footballer and coach), thus continuing the themes of his bestselling memoir Rose Boys (2001). The volume also contains new 'Catullan' poems, imitations of Catullus that Rose has been writing and publishing since the 1980s. Crimson Crop is elegant, poignant and, at times, wickedly droll. Shortlisted for the 2013 Prime Minister's Literary Award for Poetry and the 2012 WA Premier's Book Award for Poetry
