Re: The Flame-discussion thread

It’s interesting you mention Yeats and Maude, maybe Leonard didn’t recognise his Maude, or saw her too late, or the timing wasn’t right? Then again, work and relationships are a tricky thing, time spent with Maude is time away from writing that love song, the one that will be an anthem of forgiving...

Re: The Flame-discussion thread

Henning, please practice and have it ready for the Walking Weekend! I love that poem. Cihan, sorry that you are disappointed by it. I feel that it, like much of Yeats late work is spare and devoid of some of the lyricism of his earlier work, but very genuine, very heartfelt and effective. Most of th...

Re: Matters of Vital Interest: A Forty-Year Friendship with Leonard Cohen

Diane, I recently finished it and concur completely with you that it was an excellent read. It is so different from biography or interview or magazine profile. It is very apparent that there was genuine affection between the two of them. I highly recommend this book also.

Re: The Flame-discussion thread

Thank you, Scott-that was very touching. I'm struck now by Leonard's poem, "Antique Song" "Too old, too old to play the part, Too old, God only knows! I'll keep the little silver heart, The red and folded rose. And in the arms of someone strong You'll have what we had none. I'll finish up my winter ...

The Flame-discussion thread

I posted the following to a group of University of Wisconsin sports fans who I consider friends. It contains some personal history of my love of Leonard and his works, but I thought it might be a good start to a discussion of this wonderful book of poems and notebook entries. Just received the book ...

I just returned to this topic and noticed that I had missed Anneporter's video-wonderfully done to a great song! Thank you. And I really enjoyed the accounts that Vickie and 4inthemorning linked to. They brought back many memories for Anne & I. It was a wonderful week for us in a city that we have c...
