Leonard Cohen’s lyrics are rich with significance that seems to touch people quite deeply. This is an opportunity to deepen our appreciation of some of Cohen’s songs through a closer look at the lyrics, sources of inspiration, and videos of various performances and insightful interviews. This presentation is about doors we can open to step into a Leonard Cohen song to gain a greater admiration for his remarkable achievements in song writing, his unfailing ability to illumine a wide range of human emotion and experience, and an increased respect for a Canadian singer/songwriter who has earned the devotion of innumerable fans around the world.
Walter Knox, a retired English literature teacher, combined his extensive educational experiences with a keen interest in Leonard Cohen’s poetic talents. This led to a deeper understanding of the recurrent themes, the refreshing use of language, the spiritual foundations, and the surprising illumination of our interior lives found in the song writer’s recorded works.
