Allan Glenn Rose
Enjoy his vividly accessible verse just for its clarity of diction and emotion, or delve into its many layers; whatever approach you take, you will find his words strike a responsive chord in your heart.
He is one of the thirteen Canadian writers who contributed poems to the recently published “A Verdant Green”, Canada's national environmental anthology.
His latest book, “The Greatest Canadian Love Poem and Other Treasures of the Heart” explores the many aspects of this most basic and most fascinating of all human emotions. Its six sections will lead you on your own journey of the heart with stops along the way at love, loss and laughter; side trips to a beautiful garden and an enthralling cabaret, then a final stroll along the romantic roads of the past.
