When his first album made him an unlikely star in the late 1960s, Leonard Cohen was hailed as the new poet of song.

His melodies were hauntingly melodic but his lyrics were like no one else's - poignant, romantic, mystical and darkly comic.

Already a poet and a novelist, Cohen had found another calling in song..."The Songs of Leonard Cohen", "Songs from a Room" and "Songs of Love and Hate" were the titles of his first three albums.

Eight more would follow over the next 40 years. In this collector's edition, can be found the lyrics to over 100 of those classic songs, many of them now recorded by new generations of singers that include U2, Nick Cave, Rufus Wainwright and Teddy Thompson.

This unique collection demonstrates why.
