Robert McCormack wrote this introduction in 1966:

"Ten years or so ago when he (Cohen) was in his late 'teens there was a tendency to regard Leonard Cohen as a disciple of Mr. Layton's. They shared, after all, their Jewishness and their Montreal background, and, inevitably, they knew one another. Mr. Cohen, however, soon proved that he was no one's disciple except his own, moving through the richly sensual texture of his early verse - he is perhaps too well known as one of the most lyrically sensous love poets of our time - to the hard-edged surrealistic vision of the contemporary world presented with almost hallucinatory force in Flowers for Hitler. Mr. Cohen, whose extraordinary lyrical gift has always driven him towards music, has recently been writing songs for the rock group The Stormy Clovers."
