If you are one of the many fans who savor Leonard Cohen’s poetry recitations, this is a valuable and delightful resource. Marie, at Leonard Cohen Concordance, has compiled an annotated list of links to online recordings (including both videos and audio-only recordings) of Leonard Cohen reciting a number of his own poems as well as a few works by others: Poems Recited By Leonard Cohen.
I’ve included a screenshot below of the first few poems listed to offer a sense of the available recitations. The complete Poems Recited By Leonard Cohen list is, of course, much larger.
I am republishing selected posts from my former Leonard Cohen site, Cohencentric, here on AllanShowalter.com (these posts can be found at Leonard Cohen). This entry was originally posted Sept 24, 2018.
