The Rose of Temperaments | Poetry and Colour

The Rose of Temperaments | Poetry and Colour

Conceived and curated by the artist Paul Evans and Brian Lewis of Longbarrow Press, The Rose of Temperaments | Poetry and Colour is a collaborative project featuring poetry by Angelina D’Roza, A.B. Jackson, Chris Jones, Geraldine Monk, Helen Mort and Alistair Noon.

Each of these award-winning poets has been allocated one of six primary or secondary colours: red, purple, blue, green, yellow and orange, and has created a poem based on that colour.
