92Y Podcast: From the Poetry Center Archive: Leonard Cohen In 1966

As noted Friday, we’re celebrating National Poetry Month by sharing audio or video from the 92Y archive, each Monday of the month. The video podcast above features Leonard Cohen reading here on February 14, 1966. He read several poems and performed one song that would become an all-time classic. In the excerpt above, Cohen reads two poems—“For E.J.P” and “You Have the Lovers”—and performs “The Stranger Song,” which became popular in 1967 with the release of Cohen’s debut album, Songs of Leonard Cohen

Stay tuned for more recordings featuring Adrienne Rich, James Earl Jones and Lucille Clifton, one each Monday this month.

Alice Notley visits 92Y Poetry on April 7 to read from her new collection, Culture of One. Tickets are just $10 for those 35 and under.

You can also download the MP3. [16 MB]
