Originally published as two separate volumes in 1969, Jim Morrison’s first published volume of poetry gives a revealing glimpse of an era and the man whose songs and savage performances have left an indelible impression on our culture.

Intense, erotic, and enigmatic, Jim Morrison’s persona is as riveting now as the lead singer/composer “Lizard King” was during The Doors’ peak in the late sixties. His fast life and mysterious death remain controversial more than twenty years later.

The Lords and the New Creatures, Morrison’s first published volume of poetry, is an uninhibited exploration of society’s dark side—drugs, sex, fame, and death—captured in sensual, seething images. Here, Morrison gives a revealing glimpse at an era and at the man whose songs and savage performances have left their indelible impression on our culture.

    Jim Morrison's poetry appears often not very accesible..surely not at a first reading. But if we take into consideration Jim Morrison's own comment about poetry we are perhaps able to see his poetry in a different light. In Jim's self interview which is published in his first book of poems -wilderness- he explains to us: "listen, real poetry doesn't say anything, it just ticks of the possibilities, opens all doors and you can enter anyone you like". The symbols that Jim uses are very universal and are therefore in most cases not bounded to any particular 'zeitgeist' or a defined period in our time. That's why even today but probably also in a 100 years from now his poetry will remain interesting, challenging and at times disturbing. When one of Jim's best friends, Frank Lisciandro, who also published 2 books with Jim's poetry, was asked what he thought Jim meant with his writings, he also answered that this is a question which is hard to be answered. Jim's poetry can be read and re-read and you'll be able to find different meaning each time you read it. This answer in my view, relates back almost directly to jim's own comment that 'real poetry' doesn't mean anything. It's some sort of contradiction..but when something doesn't mean can mean everthing at the same time as well. It becomes 'infinite'. And here-in lies the power..... people who seriously try to read Jim's poetry cannot do anything else than ask themself questions about the meaning of the poems and if you believe you do find will be very personal as you'll undoubtly colour your interpretation of the poems with your own experiences, opinion and imagination! One of the most fascinating lines that Jim wrote in my personal opinion is also a great illustration of what i tried to capture in this short review. Read it and think about it...this is at the same time a snapshot of just a moment in time -the ultimate now- but at the same time an undeniable 'infinate' image. -"Thoughts in time and out of season The hitchhiker stood by the side of the road and leveled is thumb in the calm calculus of reason"- It is exactly because of this that Jim's poetry is likely to remain timeless and relevant for a very long time....
