Leonard Cohen's third collection of poetry, the first of Cohen's self-conscious "anti-art" gestures: an attempt, in his own words, to move "from the world of the golden-boy poet into the dung pile of the front-line writer." Advertised on the jacket as "A new sound, provocative, sharply arresting, from the young Montreal poet who has established an international reputation as one of Canada's finest writers."
