Re: New book about the lyrics

I intended the 'ageing' category to cover death. In fact, in Chapter 4, and especially in the section 'My old age'', I refer to 'death and ageing' together. They are, of course, closely related. TQ.

Re: New book about the lyrics

Thanks for the constructive review, Doron. I have tried to look at the lyrics in a different way, so it is inevitable that some people do not entirely agree with my approach. Some of your points reinforce my view that the magic of these lyrics lies in people's personal interpretation. You certainly ...

Re: Leonard Cohen films to be shown in Liverpool

I would love to attend but unfortunately I will not be free that day. If you post any more events in the North West of England, I will attend if I can.

Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

I recently wrote a review of 'You want it darker'. The review ended on an optimistic note which sadly has not worked out. http://studentat60.blogspot.co.uk/

Re: The Darker Album and the Songs

DBCohen I went through all the lyrics and tried to decide,looking at the vocabulary used, what each one was primarily 'about'. I came up with six categories - relationships, spirituality (this was the best term I could come up with for a variety of belief systems), addiction, music, ageing and one w...

Re: The Darker Album and the Songs

DBCohen I know that what LC's lyrics are about is very subjective. But as part of the analysis for my forthcoming book, I counted everything and that's what I came up with. You are right that many of the lyrics deal with more than one subject area but only 20% are primarily spiritual. Many many more...

Re: Dissertation

I am still working on the lyrics and I'm maybe a third of the way to a book. There isn't really anything else out there that covers his lyrics so I hope I can find a publisher.
