Bibliography and discography Beautiful Losers: A Manifesto Leonard Cohen is for sure the most famous Canadian singer-songwriter, but not everybody knows that his career started at least ten years before the release of his first album Songs of Leonard Cohen, In fact, not only was he a man who dedicated his life to music, but he was first of all a writer and a poet. In both compositions there is some kind of love triangle between the speaker, his wife and a friend of his. Just like what happens in the novel, neither the speaker nor the man he addresses his words to are named, although in Beautiful Losers we have a clue, an F. In fact, there is no need for this story to be completely truthful and accurate, since it could also be read as a symbolic expression of the conflicted relationship the poet has with himself: is it a coincidence that the mysterious F. Is it something that hunger and amphetamine made Cohen write, just to add another bit of mystical touch to the novel, or was he telling something about himself?

In fact, not only does Cohen represent them as the other half of the sexual realization of a man not excluding that this half may as well consist of a same sex person, of course , but he also tries to capture the feminine world, its particular features, that he manages to communicate with a very delicate and deep sensitivity. A feature that he often underlines is the sense of safety they instill, that reassuring maternal womb where every man belongs and that every man, sooner or later, wants to go back to, to find some comfort.
In Beautiful Losers the character that carries this burden is again Edith.
This girl, so far very similar to the mohawk saint, decides to leave this world killing herself in a brutal way, squashed beneath the elevator that led to the basement where she lived with her husband, the narrator.
Apart from their clearly and deeply different sexual lives, lived at two completely different extremes even though aiming at the same peace, here comes the main difference between Kateri and Edith: the saint stays until she can, the girl leaves as soon as she finds the courage. There is the strong one who bears the weight of life and the weak one who runs away.
But here is the paradox: the narrator and probably every single person who could happen to find themselves in his situation admires and chases the strong one, the heroine, Blessed Catherine Tekakwitha, but he is irremediably closer to the other one, the weak, the beautiful loser that he loves and who loves him back. Once again, Cohen shows his unique sensitivity deciding to stand by the side of who loses, of those who are able to do it without any need to pretend they are fine.
These verses are probably some of the most emblematic, just as much as the title of the song itself is, but in Beautiful Losers as well Cohen refers to politics by characterizing F. In that context, just as much in all the other aspects of his life, F. Here, if possible, F. Ironic, mocking and shameless as usual, Cohen was for Canada an artist similar to what authors such as Kerouac and Fante were for the United States, with his criticism, his swearing, his poetry.
