‘Leonard Cohen,’ by Harry Freedman Book Review

Still nothing, as Freedman rightly observes, has shaped Cohen’s art more than Kabbalah’s dominant idea: that “something went wrong at the time the world was created, leaving behind sparks of magic saints scattered across the earth, the embers needed to be gathered and restored to their rightful place. God herself (or herself or herself, as Cohen put it) is fragmented. “Creativity is a disaster,” in Cohen’s words, and “there are pieces of him or her, or it is, in fact, everywhere, and the specific mission of the Jew is to be repair the face of God.” ‘Leonard Cohen,’ by Harry Freedman Book Review
