Reviews

"A godsend for Cohen fans... A remarkable body of work that takes us back to the earliest days" * Ottawa Citizen * "A massive record of the poet's imaginative journey, through beauty, through horror, through the extremes of love and despair, from the deepest abyss of self-abnegation to the rare and necessary moments of ecstasy. The language ranges from the exquisitely beautiful to the darkly obscene, from the romantically inspired to the ironically banal... A poetic record like no other" * Toronto Star * "Impressive by any standard" * The Globe and Mail *
