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.

Which caused me to seek an image of Auguste Rodin’s ‘The Kiss’.

In doing so I came across Gustav Klimt’s ‘The Kiss’.

And of course Alfred Eisenstaedt’s “V-J Day in Times Square’.
