9780679755418: Stranger Music: Selected Poems and Songs

In the decades since he recorded his first album, Leonard Cohen has evolved into an international cult figure--and one of the most literate, daring, and affecting poet-songwriters in the world. Stranger Music presents a magnificent cross-section of Cohen's work--including the legendary songs "Suzanne," "Sisters of Mercy," "Bird on a Wire," "Famous Blue Raincoat," "I'm Your Man," and "The Future"; selections from such books as Flowers for Hitler, Beautiful Losers, and Death of a Lady's Man, and eleven previously unpublished poems. This volume demonstrates definitively that Cohen is a writer of dazzling intelligence and a force that transcends genres.

From the Inside Flap:

Stranger Music: Selected Poems and Songs celebrates the astonishing career of Leonard Cohen, revered around the world as one of the great visionaries, writers, performers, and most consistently daring songwriters.

Cohen?s career began in 1956 with the publication of Let Us Compare Mythologies, and he has since published eight books of poems ? including The Spice-Box of Earth, Death of a Lady?s Man, and Book of Mercy ? and has made numerous albums, becoming one of the most popular and influential artists in Canada, the United States, and Europe.

His first record, The Songs of Leonard Cohen, released in 1967, was a remarkable musical début and introduced some of his most famous songs, including ?Suzanne,? ?Hey, That?s No Way to Say Goodbye,? and ?Sisters of Mercy.? From then, and with each subsequent album, he earned the status as one of the most dazzlingly literate songwriters of our time.

Stranger Music brings together for the first time a comprehensive selection of Leonard Cohen?s song lyrics and his poetry, including some poems not previously published. This landmark edition demonstrates the range and depth of Cohen?s work, revealing an extraordinary gift of language that speaks with rare clarity, passion, and timelessness.

From the Back Cover:

Stranger Music brings together, at last, the words of a Canadian artist who has been anything but a stranger to so many of us for so long....Cohen has woven a chain of words that binds us together.”
Calgary Herald

Stranger Music is a massive record of the poet’s imaginative journey through beauty, through horror, through the extremes of love and despair....Cohen is always a poet of extremes: that’s where he lives, at the edges of them.”
Toronto Star

Stranger Music is a record of Cohen’s dispatches from the front, an invaluable record of a shining voice. It burns still.”
Ottawa Citizen

Descripción Random House USA Inc, United States, 1994. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. With the appearance of his first record album in 1967, Leonard Cohen - already well known in his native Canada as a poet and novelist - was introduced to audiences in the United States, where he quickly took his place among the preeminent singer/songwriters of the time. Over the years, and through the release of eight more albums, Cohen gained a reputation as a dazzlingly literate and consistently daring songwriter. His status as a cult artist grew and solidified, not only in North America but all across Europe; singers of enormously diverse styles recorded his songs; his influence could be charted in every new wave of recording artists that followed his emergence. In 1988 the release of his album I m Your Man thrust him back into the mainstream spotlight; and his latest recording, The Future, has brought him renewed widespread acclaim as one of our most enduring poet/songwriters. Now Stranger Music brings together, for the first time in one volume, a generous selection of Leonard Cohen s song lyrics and poetry. Stranger Music reveals the range and depth of Cohen s work. And it is a long-overdue celebration of his extraordinary gift for language that speaks with rare clarity, passion, and timelessness. Nº de ref. de la librería AAS9780679755418
