The colour of imaginary rain
falling forever on your old address…
Helen Mort

RoseofTempCoverConceived and curated by Paul Evans and Brian Lewis, The Rose of Temperaments is a collaborative project featuring poetry by Angelina D’Roza, A.B. Jackson, Chris Jones, Geraldine Monk, Helen Mort and Alistair Noon. Each poet has been allocated one of six primary or secondary colours – Red, Purple, Blue, Green, Yellow and Orange – and has created a sonnet based on that colour. A new sonnet will appear on this website every Thursday, from 18 August to 22 September 2016; recordings, essays and other materials relating to the project will also be uploaded during this period.
