Jim Morrison was, above all else, a writer. During his short 27 years, he wrote a little of everything; poetry, prose, song lyrics, film scripts, plays, you name it. Here we have a collection of his poetry.

This is a book that I picked up in Raleigh back when I was a student at NCSU. I can't quite remember, but I think this might have been the first book I ever purchased from Edward McCay's (the first of so, so many). It fell into my stacks of unread books until just recently.

Even before reading the afterword, you can tell that this particular collection is taken directly from Morrison's notebooks and journals, and that probably a vast majority of the work is unfinished. The editors even include photocopies of pages featuring the rough original in Jim's handwriting.

Where they could, the editors have tried to keep the work in chronological order, even though Jim apparently didn't date much of his work (probably thinking that he would wait and date the final version of the poem once he was satisfied with it). It is definitely an interesting read. ( )
