Leonard and Marianne

Saturday 2 August 2008 10:30-11:00 (Radio 4 FM)


The story of the love affair between poet and singer Leonard Cohen and Marianne Ihlen, the beautiful wife of a Norwegian novelist. The two met on the Greek island of Hydra in 1960. Their romance and eventual separation is immortalised in one of Cohen's earliest and best known songs, So Long, Marianne.

Now 45 years later, Cohen has talked to Norwegian Radio about the song, and earlier this year Marianne spoke for the first time in English about her role as muse.

Followed by News.
