Leonard Cohen's 'Book of Longing'


"Book of Longing is Cohen’s eagerly awaited new collection of poems. It contains erotic, playful, and provocative line drawings and artwork on every page, by the author, which interact in exciting and unexpected ways on the page with poetry that is timeless, meditative, and at times darkly humorous. The book brings together all the elements that have brought Leonard Cohen’s artistry with language worldwide recognition".

En los 90 Leonard Cohen paso cinco anhos estudiando Budismo en el “Mt. Baldy Zen Centre” de California. Mucho de los poemas de esta coleccion hacen referencia a este periodo de su vida. Religion y espiritualidad han sido su preocupacion creativa por mucho tiempo, al igual que el deseo y el amor por la naturalaza.
