Cohen’s Final Book of Poems Out Next Year

The final book of poems by Canadian singer, songwriter, musician and poet Leonard Cohen (1934-2016) will be out in October 2018.
Cohen’s final poems, completed days before the legendary songwriter died, will be published in an anthology next year, The Economic Times reported.
Entitled ‘The Flame,’ the volume will include Cohen’s unpublished poems as well as his prose pieces and illustrations and lyrics to his three final albums. The book has American, Canadian and British publishers.
Explaining the metaphor in the title, Robert Kory, who was Cohen’s manager, said that the Montreal-born artist had finished ‘The Flame’ days before his death and it “reveals to everyone the intensity of his inner fire.”
“During the final months of his life, Leonard had a singular focus - completing this book taken largely from his unpublished poems and selections from his notebooks,” Kory said. “The flame and how our culture threatened its extinction was a central concern”.
Cohen died in November 2016 at age 82, just weeks after he released his last album, ‘You Want It Darker,’ whose lyrics reflect heavily on death, spirituality and his place in the universe.
