Evanston: five kisses
The other evening I read a poem by Sara Teasdale, ‘The Kiss’.
This reminded me of a very different ‘The Kiss’ by Siegfried Sasson which I had seen mentioned a few days earlier in THE EYE IN THE DOOR, the second novel in Pat Barker’s REGENERATION TRILOGY. Sasson’s kiss is given by bayonet.
In doing so I came across Gustav Klimt’s ‘The Kiss’.
And of course Alfred Eisenstaedt’s “V-J Day in Times Square’.
