White Women, Dark Trains & Poem After Poem: Paul Delvaux’s Railroad Sense with C. S. Giscombe

Nov 15, 2005 | 7:00 pm

Paul Delvaux

Paul Delvaux’s nudes and skeletons are well known and much discussed; but trains, rail stations, and switching yards also figure in his paintings. C. S. Giscombe—poet, essayist, railroad engineer—talks about Delvaux’s trains and their relation to issues of race, representation, eros, and public transportation in poetry.
