This essay collection reflects the scope and reach of Leonard Cohen’s influence. It ranges from academic essays that consider the treatment of the Holocaust in Cohen’s poetry, aspects of personal and national identity in his novels, and the theoretical problems of performance in his songs, to less formal discussions such as an Internet newsgroup thread on “Closing Time” and a description of fan reactions to his concert performances in Germany. Several writers pay tribute to Cohen by contributing poems that “translate” his work into new idioms. The book also includes two new poems by Cohen himself. Intricate Preparations is fully international in scope, with contributions coming from Australia, Great Britain, France, Germany, Belgium, Norway, and Finland, as well as Canada—including something from the Governor-General herself.

Cohen's work is now finished and represents and oeuvre of near unparalleled majesty. Everybody Knows is a detailed examination of the journey that Leonard Cohen wove, from his beginnings as a novelist and poet, his critically acclaimed ‘cult-classic’ albums of the sixties through to his triumphant tours of the new millennium. Every stage of Cohen's remarkable life up until his 80th birthday in September 2014 is expertly analysed, including thoughts, memories and comments from those who have worked with him and from the open-hearted many who have been inspired by his art. This Omnibus Enhanced edition includes a Digital Timeline of his life, allowing you to experience his music, live performances and memorabilia through audio, video and imagery.

One of the best-known experimental novels of the 1960s, Beautiful Losers is Leonard Cohen’ s most defiant and uninhibited work. As imagined by Cohen, hell is an apartment in Montreal, where a bereaved and lust-tormented narrator reconstructs his relations with the dead. In that hell two men and a woman twine impossibly and betray one another again and again. Memory blurs into blasphemous sexual fantasy--and redemption takes the form of an Iroquois saint and virgin who has been dead for 300 years but still has the power to save even the most degraded of her suitors. First published in 1966, Beautiful Losers demonstrates that its author is not only a superb songwriter but also a novelist of visionary power. Funny, harrowing, and fiercely moving, it is a classic erotic tragedy, incandescent in its prose and exhilarating for its risky union of sexuality and faith.

From the early years, when he morphed from celebrated poet to provocative singer-songwriter, to his induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Leonard Cohen has endured as one of the most enigmatic and profound figures—with a uniquely compelling voice and unparalleled depth of artistic vision—in all of popular music. The aesthetic quality and intellectual merit of Cohen’s work are above dispute; here, for the first time, a team of philosophers takes an in-depth look at its real significance. Want to know what Cohen and Kierkegaard have in common? Or whether Cohen rivals the great philosophical pessimist Schopenhauer? Then this book is for you. It provides the first thorough analysis of Cohen from various (philosophical) positions. It is intended not only for Cohen fans but also undergraduates in philosophy and other areas. It explores important neglected aspects of Cohen’s work without attempting to reduce them to academic tropes, yet nonetheless will also be useful to academics—or anyone—beguiled by the enigma that is Leonard Cohen.

To mark the publication of Leonard Cohen's final book, The Flame, McClelland & Stewart is proud to reissue six beautiful editions of Cohen's cherished early works of poetry, many of which are back in print for the first time in decades. A freshly packaged new series for devoted Leonard Cohen fans and those who wish to discover one of the world's most adored and celebrated writers. Originally published by McClelland & Stewart in 1972, The Energy of Slaves is Cohen's fifth collection, and one of his most controversial. A dark and intense book, described by one critic as "deliberately ugly, offensive, bitter, anti-romantic," Cohen considered it a document of his struggle--"I've just written a book called The Energy of Slaves," he told an interviewer at the time, "and in there I say that I'm in pain." Bracing, challenging, and equally beautiful and off-putting, it remains one of his most compelling and complex works.

“A treasure trove for Leonard Cohen fans—the dazzling, wide-ranging collection of interviews that Jeff Burger has unearthed not only offers the songwriter’s story in his own words but reveals that Cohen’s language in conversation can be every bit as magnificent as his lyrics.” —Alan Light, author of The Holy or the Broken This book collects more than fifty interviews with Leonard Cohen, one of the most admired performers of the last half century, conducted worldwide between 1966 and 2012, and also includes a foreword by singer Suzanne Vega and eight pages of rarely seen photos. In it, the artist talks about “Bird on the Wire,” “Hallelujah,” “Famous Blue Raincoat,” and his other classic songs. He candidly discusses his famous romances, his years in a Zen monastery, his ill-fated collaboration with producer Phil Spector, and his long battle with depression. He also comments on his sometimes controversial poetry and novels, the financial crisis that nearly wiped out his savings, and his remarkable late-career resurgence. Here you’ll find interviews that first appeared in the New York Times and Rolling Stone, but also conversations that have not previously been printed in English, as well as many illuminating reminiscences that contributors supplied specifically for this definitive anthology. Jeff Burger is the editor of Springsteen on Springsteen. He has contributed to Barron’s, Family Circle, GQ, the Los Angeles Times, Reader’s Digest, and more than seventy-five other magazines, newspapers, and books. He lives in Ridgewood, New Jersey.
