Okay - who's Last Year's Man? Cohen past self?


Here's a quote from the author of Last Year's Man. Make of it what you will.

“I think that, from a certain point of view, my songs are free from meaning and significance. There's not a secret that is being concealed, there's nothing that I am not yielding. It really doesn't have a meaning any more than a diamond has a meaning. The meaning is that it was cut and polished and it produces light.” -- Details for Men, January, 1993
Leonard Cohen

In other words, it's just a song. I thought the tie in with Joan of Arc was perfect.

I think that's not my type of poetry then...

@Yalow,

In the real world, there are no such thing as angels; however, whether or not she thought she heard angels matters why?

Was she insane? Who knows?!

@Ragman,
You wouldn't say that if you'd seen the Holy Stone of Clonrichert and got a terrific buzz off it.

I’m guessing the absence of proof of magical angels throughout time disproves that Joan heard actual angels.

You know, SCIENCE.

Trust the SCIENCE!

@Lash,
Well, you know better than anyone that Angels are elements of Faith, like all the other religious symbols and elements. Science is scientific, and should be taught in schools.
