Re: The Darker Album and the Songs

Dear Doron, Joe, Adam, Vicki, Violet, Steven, Mat and every other lovely person in this thread - I am too busy at mo to write (don't think I have anything to add anyway), but thanks for your thoughts! Let's continue to steep ourselves in LC's work - at least until we gently decouple ourselves from ...

Re: The Darker Album and the Songs

Hi everyone. I just want to make a comment concerning the creative process in general since I think it's relevant to this discussion. When an artist/writer updates or re-uses an older line or lyric (or other aspect of one's work) this shouldn't necessarily be interpreted as his/her thinking about th...

Re: The Darker Album and the Songs

Violet, you revealed yourself as the anonymous and mysterious entrant into Jarkko's competition. It's nicely satisfying, if not as a Files logo, then as an emblem for Leonard Cohen's art. Kudos. With an artist, there is the body of work that exists and remains, much of it shrouded in mystery, and i...

Re: "come forth from the cloud of unknowing . . ."

Yes, but, you can still see the death certificate -- it's not quite under the rug yet. You just have to take that leap and inquire after it 'n see what happens. Anyway, nice to see you here, Geoffrey. I just had a dream about Leonard, in fact. He was sitting across from me at long table wearing a fe...

Re: The Darker Album and the Songs

Violet, Thank you very much for all your effort. The association to Gauguin’s painting is very compelling. Another association for the “yellow sign” at the end of the poem is to the one Jews were forced to ware by the Nazis (and in some places in Europe already in Medieval times); allusions to the ...

Re: The Darker Album and the Songs

FOR WILF AND HIS HOUSE When young the Christians told me how we pinned Jesus like a lovely butterfly against the wood, and I wept beside paintings of Calvary at velvet wounds and delicate twisted feet. But he could not hang softly long, your fighters so proud with bugles, bending flowers with their...

Re: The Darker Album and the Songs

Thank you Doron for the links and comments, and for the image appreciation.

I'm taking in that poem, but just to thank you in the meantime.

Re: "Elaboration of a tube" line in "Going Home"?

However, my question is whether what I cited is true of Scientology. Is anyone here versed in this?

Re: The Darker Album and the Songs

I'll direct this question to Doron, but to anyone else who is versed in this, please join in. I'm just wondering -- especially given the Christ imagery in this album -- when did the figure of Jesus first appear in Leonard's work? Had he only ever conjured him in his haunting Suzanne that would have ...

Re: "Elaboration of a tube" line in "Going Home"?

Hi, I'm your fan. That would seem to open another area of investigation, the relationship of LC's work to that of Aleister Crowley and his forerunners. However, I was hoping someone here knew enough about Scientology to confirm whether the very specific reference to a "tube" could be sourced there. ...

Re: "come forth from the cloud of unknowing . . ."

Hi Geoffrey. I love those kind of days.. sun and snow and blue sky. It's good you had such a day. I have to say I am by no means a Winehouse expert. I'd need to do a lot more research to claim that. However, when I was looking into it there was a lot more information to be found online given it was ...

I just checked this thread, and was making a correction to my post, and instead another post got started.
