Famous Blue Raincoat ~ by Leonard Cohen

Ariadne took this song to class and asked us to comment on the story, who the speaker was, and the addressee and so on..

  1. Like we discussed in class, the song is on a letter format. I think that he is writting to a frind that "distroyed" his marriage wit Jane. But this betrayal is not that clear in the narrative. I imagine that she had a relationship with 'Famous Blain raincoat' and in the letter the speaker is forgiving him of it.

  2. Hello Grace and peace!

    Glad to see another Christian blog, spreading the word
    God, I'm going to visit you and say that your blog
    being a blessing in our Christian blogosphere, I'm you

    Make me a little visit and take time to participate in the
    Lottery Book: transformed temperament by Tim LaHaye



  3. Beatifull, so so much beatifull.

    I still remember the time you talk to me about Leo Cohen, Cesaria Evora, Mariene Pierrot at that museum. It was on wednesday, thursday or another day. Evening, a nice day. Precious years to remember. I still remember that history about Barthes at Modern Art Museum, the laughters. Cines, cups of coffes, proparoxitones words, books -T.S Elliot, Whitman, Sexton.(Some precious dreams too).

    Now you is a English teacher, I am a Historian...
    "I'm glad you stood in my way".

    You'll never back to this time again. Me neither.

  4. Sorry...

    the current word above is "beatiful" not Beatifull, ok? bad Pc...


so... what do you think?
