Just bought Book of Longing

Postby Yon1967 » Sat Oct 10, 2009 7:47 pm

My first book of Leonard Cohens poems!!

Just treated myself to Book of Longing. Was advised to try Let us Compare Mythologies or Starnger Music : Selected Poems and Songs to read first but Book of Longing was the only one available in my town but have asked them to order them

Am so excited - love reading all your posts and opinions on everything - have to log off now and give myself some time out with my new purchase:)

A very good choice 8)
Enjoy ---
I know she is coming
I know she will look
And that is the longing
And this is the book.

Book of Longing is a wonderful read. The reader must focus on what they read to understand what the beautiful book, Leonard wrote. :razz: ;-)

yeah...it's both reality and joy principle, both irony and pathos, when Leonard is the centre of his unrequitted love
such a great drive in book of longing
Of course I´m pathetic, I´ve spent my life getting the most impressive stuff out of the most impressive books. Malcolm Bradbury
