Metro's 'Poetry Train'

A “Poetry in the Metro” train started running on the Light Blue Line last week featuring excerpts from the biographies and works of five Chilean poets, including Nobel Prize laureates Pablo Neruda and Gabriela Mistral.

 

This decorated train, which is scheduled to run for six months, will be the seventh themed train in the Moscow metro. Metro officials say they made a deliberate choice to bypass Russian poets and show off foreign verses instead.

The poetry train is Moscow’s second with a literary theme. The first, titled “Reading Moscow,” runs on the Ring Line and has cozy walls covered with stickers of abstracts from children’s books.
