I don't think the book is now 'irrelevant' at all. ooops... a misunderstanding occured. the lines about 'irrelevance' of the book are from the poem itself. i figured it was Leonard's modest way of saying: it will not address matters that are discussed a great deal right now. i'm a LC fan. big one. ...

sounds like an introduction to the book. the book is irrelevant now, and was ment to be discovered later, when there are no more flood, earthquakes and wars... does this mean that Book Of Longing will not address contemporary world matters after all? the last few poems seemed to go a tiny little bit...

not mentioning the man who sent him a song on a tape in 1990s, to see it appear on next Dylan album. i don't care about Dylan's legal rights any more than Kush does, but this simply isn't true. 1. you cannot say 'to see it appear' since the songs had nothing to do one with the other in lyrical sens...

Jurica...please tell me you're not buying into this St. Leonard nonsense. It's ridiculous. The man is flawed...deeply. Enjoy his music but don't get caught up in the adulation frenzy on this board. buying what? i don't know anything about this subject. and from what i've read here, neither does any...

I don't know whether R Cornelius is rightfully credited or not and I s'pose we'll never know the real story or who is more at fault. and neither do any of the rest of us including the ones who are 100% on LCs or 100% on Cornelius' side. that's why i never commented on any of it before. what i wish ...

i realy do not have a key to understanding this poem, so the best i can offer is how i feel about it. there seems to be some killing going on there (i don't feel like going into what it may symoblize): "the silver knives are flashing", "ghost climbs on the table", "These are the final days: this is ...

i listened to the show twice. nice. i didn't know, however, that in GB tradition of chanson was so poor. it sounded as if it was under-underground movement only living in one club... glad to report that Brel was often played, covered and mentioned in Croatia over the years. a friend of mine even iss...

I have to get another copy of The Golden Bough. Lent mine out, years ago, and never got it back. well, it's free to distribute now. i think i got mine for like 2 bucks or something. very cheap. i also find (for The Waste Land analyses) it useful to download it from some Guttenberg project site, bec...

The only jugian analysis by a Croatian guy I remimber was not about Suzanne, but about the Captain true. my bad. obviously you remembered better than me. regarding jungian readings on VP board and elsewhere, they are not popular only in reading Cohen's work. from what i can tell reading around, Jun...

Tchoc, thanx for very interesting observations. did you read the jungian analyses of Suzanne that another Croatian guy did some time ago? also very interesting read and a lot of his readings related strongly to your. if you don't remember or didn't read it, perhaps you can find it through search eng...

Re: Drowning men

Don't expect me to do this ever again, LOL! :lol: too bad - you are good! not realising how good things are before you lose them is another very good point. now, back to another obsession of mine. i spent like ages over this poem, and i know it mostly by heart, but i didn't find from where the line...

"The interpretations are, in the end, something personal, in There is a War, I can see worry. In this song and in some moments of the Cohen's work I perceive tension and desire to go out, to fight" ---this i agree with. i think 'There is a war' is a song about 'taking arms against a sea of troubles,...

well, it's a matter of taste will you get interested or not in this sort of analyses. noone is pressing anyone to do anything they don't want. just to comment two things. one is that i also am searching for my own interpretation. it doesn't have to be the same thing LC meant when he wrote it. i'm ju...
