The Walrus - - CONTRIBUTORS’ NOTES -

“Clos­ing Lines,” p. 63 “Leonard Co­hen was a great song­writer and per­former, a poet, and a Zen Bud­dhist monk. The rep­u­ta­tion and stature of an artist can be the re­sult of a num­ber of things—tal­ent, luck, perserver­ence, fads, and con­ven­tions of the day. It’s only when the cre­ator ex­its the pic­ture and can no longer ex­ert much con­trol over how their work is re­ceived that the crit­i­cal con­ver­sa­tion re­ally be­gins.” Charles Fo­ran is the author of eleven books. He lives in Toronto.
