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.
