This morning, we were full of others’ praise for poetry.

This afternoon, we have something for those less enthralled with the art form, or at least with some of those who practiced it.

And that present is the New York Times’s review of The Flame: Poems, Notebooks, Lyrics, Drawings by Leonard Cohen.

In William Logan’s eyes, the book is a blatant attempt to profit off of Cohen’s death and unlikely to entertain anyone beyond the most diehard fans.

Scathing criticism of the book — and jabs at its author — await you here.
