Book of Longing
Book of Longing | Leonard Cohen
Leonard Cohen is one of the great writers, performers, and most consistently daring artists of our time. Book of Longing is Cohens eagerly awaited new collection of poems, following his highly acclaimed 1984 title, Book of Mercy, and his hugely successful 1993 publication, Stranger Music, a Globe and Mail national bestseller. Book of Longing contains erotic, playful, and provocative line drawings and artwork on every page, by the author, which interact in exciting and unexpected ways on the page with poetry that is timeless, meditative, and at times darkly humorous. The book brings together all the elements that have brought Leonard Cohens artistry with language worldwide recognition. From the Hardcover edition.

Forgot to post this. Story of my life. Finished this book and The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Might actually meet my reading goals this year!

This was my B book for #LitsyAtoZ and The Wonderful Wizard of Oz was my children‘s classic from before 1980 for the #ReadHarder challenge.

Couldn‘t do it. Gave it 50 pages. Poetry isn‘t my thing. Don‘t have time to waste on something I don‘t enjoy.

A reissue of his book. A beautiful copy. My gift to myself. A wonderful poet. Love reading his words. Love listening to his words. So glad I got to his last concert in Perth. @MrsMalaprop

Is there a better wedding gift than your BFF getting you PageHabit where I don‘t even have enough space or characters to explain this awesomeness???? It‘s creepy how well they know me. The notes from the author are almost the best part. My husband liked the complimentary pint glass. Lol!!!

A year ago today we lost one of the greats... #LeonardCohen #Heythatsnowaytosaygoodbye

Louise Yes. I'd like to read a book of his lyrics and poems one day. I have a friend in Canada who is singing in a memorial production about Cohen and his work. Such an amazing and enigmatic lyricist! 2y

Why it takes me forever to finish a task, exhibit A. I'm supposed to be replanting this poor thing that my cat knocked over. But the dirt fell into my magazine stack, which I had to clean, which made me look at this old Geist and notice it has some Leonard Cohen self portraits in it, which made me wonder if I have a frame they'd look good in if I cut them out, which... ok, repotting plant, right. I got this.

Sace I'm the same way. 2y

I've loved Thousand Kisses Deep since the first time I heard Leonard Cohen recite it at a concert. Now, I hear his voice every time I read it. I thought I'd share the list of his works too, even though the it's incomplete. #LitsyPoetry365

I haven't read much poetry in recent years, so I'm looking forward to the #LitsyPoetry365 challenge! I can think of no better way to kick things off than a re-read of Leonard Cohen's Book of Longing. I was a fan of his music and poetic lyrics long before I realized that he had written two novels and published several collections of poetry. With his passing in November, the world lost a truly talented artist, but his words will live on.

SharonGoforth @TK-421 Love this! I've not read any Cohen, but I need to. Thanks for sharing this! 3y
PenguinInFlight I had no idea he had written poetry...I love his song lyrics! I'll have to look this up!! 😍 3y

I have no words to describe the grief I felt learning of Leonard Cohen's passing. He was truly a genius with words and such a talented performer as well. RIP, Mr Cohen. You will be missed 😥

"I've worked at my work
I've slept at my sleep
I've died at my death
And now I can leave"
- from Mission
by Leonard Cohen

Saw him live about four/five years ago...the most humble, respectful, beautiful, talented, often troubled, frequently haunted and deeply spiritual man.

He truly made the world a better place for so many through his music, poetry and prose

RIP Mr. Cohen
