Leonard Cohen: Poems and Songs
A magnificent selection of song lyrics and poems from across the storied career of one of the most daring and affecting poet-songwriters in the world.
This anthology contains a cross section of his five decades of influential work, including such legendary songs as “Suzanne,” “Sisters of Mercy,” “Bird on the Wire,” “Famous Blue Raincoat,” and “I’m Your Man” and searingly memorable poems from his many acclaimed poetry collections, including Flowers for Hitler, Beautiful Losers, and Death of a Lady’s Man. Encompassing the erotic and the melancholy, the mystical and the sardonic, this volume showcases a writer of dazzling intelligence and live-wire emotional immediacy.
This book is part of the Everymans Library Pocket Poets series - that means it's rather lovely. It's a pocket clothbound volume with an elegant jacket, full cloth sewn binding, silk ribbon marker and headbands, gold stamping on front and spine and decorative endpapers.
