Leonard Cohen 1934 - 2016

  1. 1. LEONARD COHEN 1934-2016
  2. 2. Leonard Norman Cohen was born into a middle-class Jewish family in a Montreal, Canada on 21st September 1934. From a young age he studied music and poetry and, even before attending McGill University in 1951 to study English, was already performing his poems in various clubs round Little Portugal. In 1954 Cohen had his poemspublished in the short-lived but hugely influential ‘CIV/n’ magazine beforepublishing his first book of poetry, ‘Let us Compare Mythologies’, in 1956. When he graduated at Columbia University, New York, in 1957 he moved back to Montreal where he undertook menial work to support his writing. Cohen was able to supplement this with money from his father’s will who died when he was nine-indeed, his first book is dedicated to his late father. In 1967 Cohen moved back to New York where he was a fringe figure in Andy Warhol’s ‘Factory’ scene. His song ‘Suzanne’ became a hit for folk singer Judy Collins which courted the attention Columbia records.
