Introductory Lecture: Manual for Living with Defeat on Boogie Street: A Lexicon for Lovers of Leonard Cohen
Held by Aubrey Glazer (Panui, University of Pennsylvania, Herbert D. Katz Center for Advanced Judaic Studies), this webinar will explore why Leonard Cohen’s post-secular songbook—from the songs “Hallelujah” (1984) to “You Want It Darker” (2016)—has touched so many, and such a diversity of, listeners. Taking a uniquely interdisciplinary approach to Cohen’s lyrics, these four sessions will ask questions such as: How do this “mystic’s” songs illuminate questions of meaning-making in a post-secular context? What roles do Kabbalah, Hasidism, and Rinzai Buddhism play in his lyrics?
