Poetry, Performance, Pilgrimage
A homage by Lesley Marx

As a poet, Leonard Cohen gave us lyrics that wove together death, desire and the quest for the divine in richly evocative ways. As a performer, he brought wit, elegance and immense charm to the stage. With Hallelujah,
he left a special legacy in a multitude of cover versions that unfold the varied layers of the song. Lesley will pay
homage to the late and much-mourned troubadour through film and other media.
Lesley has taught English literature and film at the University of Cape Town since the 1980s. She was the inaugural
director and founder of the Centre for Film and Media Studies in 2003.
