Leonard Cohen: The flame

Selve værket er en samling af digte, sangtekster og noter fra hele Cohens liv inddelt i tre sektioner. Han arbejdede så hurtigt, han kunne, for at gøre samlingen færdig og efterlod klare instruktioner i det tilfælde, at han ikke skulle nå det. Historien uanset, så er teksterne fuldgyldige Cohen-værker. Han arbejder med følelser på så dybt et niveau, at alt er levende i dem. Hans evne til at trække verden ind i en sætning er uforlignelig. Det menneskelige, det guddommelige, higen, søgen, brænden og død er eviggyldige emner, og han fanger dem ind, efterlader deres aftryk på sine sider og slipper dem atter fri.
