How Do We Come to Terms with Leonard Cohen’s Legacy in the #Metoo Era?

“About a year ago, a friend who, like me, is a huge Leonard Cohen fan, confessed that she’d had a terrible thought: ‘Thank God Leonard Cohen is dead.’ I told her I’d often had the same sentiment. To understand why a Cohen devotee would harbour such feelings, you have to appreciate just how important Cohen is to the people who revere him and how defensive we can get about his legacy.”
