Title: The Spice Box of Earth
Author: Leonard Cohen
Page Count/Review Word Count: 93
This short and sweet collection is Cohen’s second book of poetry, published at the tender young (ish) age of twenty seven. Back then, in 1961, Cohen was yet to embark upon a musical career which now spans six decades – he was just an ambitious young upstart who wanted to leave his mark.
Having said that, this work still shows great potential, and it foreshadows what was later to come.
